HI Karl, hi Mojca, hi all,

a few comments from the Debian side:

sRGB_IEC61966-2-1_black_scaled.icc is non-free and should be removed
from TeX Live.

See the long thread of discussion about that here
and the final clarification of the license in 2017.

I know I should have written about it earlier, but it completely dropped
out of my memory.

We should inform Ross that he removes/replaces the files in his package,
and the file should be removed from TeX Live.

I agree with Karl here. Too much black voodoo and huge assumptions,
including wrong statements on websites.

Unless there is a clear statement of ECI I would not include any of
