Hi John, Daniel
The Freesound samples use a Creative Commons Sampling+ 1.0 License
<http://creativecommons.org/licenses/sampling+/1.0/> which allows you:
To sample, mash-up, or otherwise creatively transform this work for
commercial or noncommercial purposes.
To perform, display, and distribute copies of this whole work for
noncommercial purposes (e.g., file-sharing or noncommercial webcasting).
I think the second right applies in this case. Seems like I'm going to
have to try to get some re-licensing done :)

Thanks for the new version. I've uploaded it to our download server
and updated the wiki page.
It seems the URL to the forum page is bad. Guess you're referring to
To answer your question, any contents included with Freeciv must have
a license that is compatible with the GNU GPL v2. I just had a quick
look again at the Creative Commons license that Freesounds refer to,
and it unfortunately has a clause that forbids commercial use, which
is a no-go in in the FLOSS world. Perhaps you could hear with
Freesounds if they offer some kind of dual-licensing deal for open
Oh and BTW, for future packages I suggest you put your own name
somewhere in README file. This is a common practice.
