Would it be ok for someone to make wad which uses textures from Freedoom and Sprites from DOOM II?

Freedoom is released under a permissive license, so the only requirement you have to follow when releasing your WADs is to credit the Freedoom team.

Technically, you can extract the necessary patches from freedoom's wad file and just include them into your wad.

Or you can use the freedoom_textures.wad from http://free.doomers.org/ . It only contains patches and texture definitions, so you could use it along with any other WAD to have Freedoom textures.

It's okay to reuse Freedoom material in your own WADs, and there's no kind of restriction about them "only being able to run under Freedoom" or anything like that. As a simple example, KDIZD used some material from Freedoom.

To do it properly, include this text in your text file:

This looks funny, why not just write 2001-2010 I wonder?

The GNU people suggest listing each year individually.

I think it's being pedantic ad absurdum.
