For the extensions scour.py and yocto_css.py, you're right we should not be distributing these with the codebase. In 4.8.4 you can simply prune them; they're extensions and not required for compilation or use of the code. Looking at our codebase, I see a third extension svg_transform, with the same problem.
rm inkscape-0.48.4/share/extensions/scour.* rm inkscape-0.48.4/share/extensions/yocto_css.* rm inkscape-0.48.4/share/extensions/svg_transform.*
I'll take the action to raise this issue on the list to ensure it gets resolved for 0.91 and 0.48.5.
Actually I notice that scour was written specifically for Inkscape. So I've emailed the author to see if he'd be open to re-licensing or dual-licensing so we can keep using it.
The author's willing to dual license as GPL2. I'll work with him on getting the licensing fixed in the code both upstream and in Inkscape.
Scour is now dual-licensed under Apache 2 and GPL 2:
I've also updated the license of the files in our tree. Josh, could you also cherrypick this change to the 0.48.5 tree?
@Jan, with this I believe the licensing issues you've raised are now squared away; please let us know if we've missed anything.
