Task Description

Description:

Tuxcards is seemingly published under some GPL license, on the splash screen I did not see which one.

The splash screen claims it is Donationware, which is bringing confusion.

Picture: https://gnu.support/images/issues/2018-06-17-21:35:41.png

Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donationware

So either the splash screen shall be removed, as it is donationware, or author contacted, or package removed as it is unclear if it is free software or donationware. Free software can be sold, and if it is sold, then such software shall not ask for donations again in my opinion.
