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 http://download.huzheng.org/Quick/ 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."
