Licence oddity in Securing Debian Manual (was: Proposed addition to Debian web pages re: GNU FDL)

This reminded me of something I noticed earlier today. The Securing
Debian Manual at
http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/securing-debian-howto/ has in its
front material the following:

Doesn't that create a licence conflict?
Cheers, A: No.
Rick Moen Q: Should I include quotations after my reply?
