It has some python bytecode in gtkreddit/bin/gtkredditc that should 
probably be removed.

Do they have the rights to distribute the images under 
data/media/error? IIRC they are from rage comics.

Do they have the rights to distribute the facebook, google+, twitter 
and reddit logos? I know that at least some of those logos are 
trademarked and not sure if the owners of them would appreciate them 
being licensed under the GPLv3+, I didn't see any notice of trademarks 
in the copyright file.

I guess I'll just abstain from voting on this one.
