    I have read through the plugin guidelines here:
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/about/guidelines/

    I do realize that Creative Commons licenses are incompatible with the GPL. The first point in the guidelines, however, states that all code must be compatible with GPLv2 or later. What about an icon font, though? It’s not code and not a library.

    If I distribute that font with the plugin, would that be a reason not to be accepted into the plugin repository?

    Cheers!

    It still has to be GPL2.

    Ok, no problem. Maybe the wording should be adjusted on the plugins guidelines page then to avoid confusion. Something along the lines that every single file, no matter the contents, has to be licensed so to be compatible with the GPLv2 or later.

    The wording actually says:

    Your plugin must be compatible with the GNU General Public License v2,

    Which covers everything in that plugin.

    Yup, but later on in the note, which should really clarify things, it talks only about code and third-party libraries, which would also mean code to developers.
