License CC-BY-SA-4.0 used in KiCad



in commit 4db550353e the file resources/linux/appdata/kicad.appdata.xml
got modified and some reference to the license CC-BY-SA-4.0 was added.


I can't find out which files or parts of the KiCad source are now
affected by this license.

The file LICENSE.README is also not holding any useful information about
this license in relation to the files are published by this license.

The Lintain QS tool in Debian is detecting that appdata.xml is having a
reference to CC-BY-SA-4.0 but can't find the required parts inside the
Debian specific copyright file. And of course not because I will need to
add this information. But what do I need to add?

Wayne, as you have added 4db550353e, do you have some useful notes on this?
