Re: DFSG Draft #8

I haven't been following the discussion of the new DFSG drafts at all,
but I must say, I'm very impressed with the current draft. I have
only a few minor nits to pick:
1) In section 2.3, move `Restrictions on charges (discouraged)' below
`Availability of source code', to put the most important
information closer to the beginning of the section, and add the
discouraged restriction as an afterthought.
2) In section 3.1, where `discouraged' is defined, there is a typo:
`allowed but discourage' (should be `allowed but discouraged').
3) Section 3.2 should probably be rephrased as `The license has fewer
restrictions than the ones listed in this document.' The current
phrasing is just confusing.
4) Section 3.4... instead of `as examples', maybe write `At the time
of this writing, we believe that the following licenses are
considered ``free'' according to the above guidelines.' If you
don't rephrase this, at least fix the typo (`Debian consider'
should be `Debian considers').
Thanks for your great work on this document... I think it'll be a
welcome clarification of the current DFSG,
