Description Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2019-06-08 22:58:28 UTC
There is no COPYING file or similar in the tar ball.

We do not know the author and the origin of the dict.
The website has no reliable information on licenses. 
One package is even tagged as 
"quick_frank-deu-eng is Commercial, others GPL"
but no license files are present.

There is no reason to believe that we may distribute it properly as GPL.

Besides that:
"The original StarDict project has recently been removed from SourceForge due to copyright infringement reports."
