Yes, AFAIK, ZLib license is GPL-compatible and you could relicense it
to GPL. You can also distribute your code under different licenses at
once, dual-lincensing, as MySQL or Qt do, for example. If you're
interested, I can find out for you and clarify the details through
debian-legal mailing list.

Debian currently recognizes as DFSG-free the CC-by 3.0 and CC-by-sa
3.0 only, but that would be OK :)

Under which CC license is it distributed?

I don't have much time right now to answer, but I'll try to answer
this as soon as I can :)
