No, This problem is not resolved.
Bacause Kiten bundled "Kanjidic" (kiten-4.8.2/data/kanjidic) is contain SKIP code.

SKIP code license is CC-BY-NC-SA.
This license is not permit commercial use. Its non-free. (Violate free software definition, Freedom 0) (See Section 7)

Please read Kanjidic document.

"Kiten bundled Kanjidic" is not "without SKIP code (already included for debian and trisquel)" version.


"Kiten bundled Kanjidic != Without SKIP code version Kanjidic (Already included for debian and trisquel)"

I suggest that replace bundled Kanjidic to Kanjidic Without SKIP code version, or Remove SKIP code.

And, I reporting to upstream.

I think Debian already removed it. But I don't know what exactly the SKIP codes are.
