GFDL is not free for debian, and my pkg is for main. You could package the documentation in a separate "-doc" package that is in non-free and Suggest (or maybe Recommend) it from the core package. You could get the owners of the copyright to relicense the work. You could get debian-legal to review the licensing and see if this use of the GFDL is appropriate for main. Sometimes a license that is normally appropriate for main can be disallowed due to the interpretation of the copyright holder. (ISTR, Pine's license being like this.) It is possible the converse could be true as well. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
