It was me, bringing up this topic in connection with tests and demos for newly contributed scripts to the image package.
Actually I already do have a bunch of image files available, where I double checked the copyrights. I could also easily find more properly licensed images if needed. My question regarding sample images in Octave was more about:
* do we want this at all? It takes up "disk" space... (We should probably restrict ourselfs to a couple of files of <100k)
* should the images be in core or in the image package?
* in what folder should they go? (in order to be accessible for tests, in order to be installed during the user installation)
* where shall we put the list with the copyright notes? (most images would probably be cc-by oder cc-by-sa so we need to at least name the author and the licence of those images.)
