At the moment we work on the LibO mimetype icons and upload the source files to the wiki.

If they would be licensed right from the beginning under LGPL, the final icons could easily be 
integrated in the product without asking every contributor for licensing their work under LGPL.

This might be true for other graphics too when we start working on the "Community Branding".

I could imagine other parts of the package that might be handled in a similar way (menu icons, 
templates, gallery items ...).

I'm not a license expert either, but nobody told me about negative aspects of such a double license 
strategy by now, so I just wanted to post my ideas...

ok, I see the point - thanks for raising it! Can you post this to the steering-discuss list? I'd like to have the steering committee have a look at it.
