Done--thanks for the suggestion.

I realized that this image may not have have come directly from our
project.  I could be mistaken, but I don't think we've released an svg
of the pigeon bird or the Pidgin text.  It looks like these may have
been created by Joel Yoder.  And so that complicates the licensing.
If his images are considered a "derivative work" then I believe he
would be obliged to list the license as "GPLv2 or later" (to match our
original images).  If he simply saved our images as an svg then I
believe that would be considered a derivative work.  It seems like
that isn't the case, though.  He seems like he may have recreated the
images based on our originals.  I don't know whether this would be
considered a derivative work.

Anyway, on the off chance someone is interested in this, feel free to
follow one of the 4 Wikimedia/Wikipedia pages that I left a comment
