people, i just want to remember you that DFSG stands for debian free
SOFTWARE guidelines. documentation is *not* software and with the FDL
being used for more and more documents (i release all the docs i write
under it and i continue to consider them *free*) we need to:

1. write the DFDG; or
2. update the DFSG to include explicitly documentation.
