Drupal only allows GPL licenced icons to be in its repository (for private
projects, however, you may use what you want). There has been a consensus
about using the "Tango project" icons within Drupal (
http://tango.freedesktop.org/Tango_Desktop_Project). But these icons are not
available under a GPL licence. There are, however, some Tango icons in our
repository, for examle in modules/views.

There is definitely a need to rediscuss this issue. If we allow CC licenced
icons, we could switch to http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/ as they
provide a lot more icons suited for a CMS environment, wheras Tango project
is aimed towards a (Linux) Desktop/Window manager.
