1. I think the license field should be:
CC-BY and Free Art and GPL+
I couldn't find anything that refers to a specific GPL version and according to
the licensing page, GPL is not a valid short form.
2. According to the guidelines:
"MUST: If (and only if) the source package includes the text of the license(s)
in its own file, then that file, containing the text of the license(s) for the
package must be included in %doc."
So I have doubts that the text of the licenses should be included in the README.
I see, well for the CC licenses, atleast a link to the webpage with the
shortform must be included, as the CC licenses have this clause:
"* For any reuse or distribution, you must make clear to others the license
terms of this work. The best way to do this is with a link to this web page."
I thought it would be better to just include the shortform, for offline reference.
More in general I think the guideline you quote doesn't apply here, as that is
meant for packages where upstream distributes the sources in bundled form, like
tar or zip file. In this case there is a direct link on the music site webpage
to the .ogg file and on this same page a link to the license, so in a sense the
license and music files are bundled too, just like when they are in a zip file,
but now one needs to do some more work to get both parts of the bundle.
In the end either way is fine with me though, so if you think its better to rip
out the license texts and only provide links to the relevant CC license short
forms, then I'll do that. So please let me know which one it will be and then
I'll prepare a new release.
