Thanks David

Apparently David Gervais has released his tile sets under a Creative Commons license. This is great news. A big thanks for doing so.

Thank you, indeed.

However, this license is incompatible with GNU GPL, so the tiles have to be distributed separately, I'm afraid, unless all the code is also licensed under the old Angband license (assuming it's compatible with CC)...

I think you misunderstood the FSF page; they only say that you cannot use such a CC-BY licence to protect a piece of software or documentation, but it's fine for art:

"This is a non-copyleft free license that is good for art and entertainment works, and educational works. Please don't use it for software or documentation, since it is incompatible with the GNU GPL and with the GNU FDL."
