[ Bcc'ed to -project, -devel and -legal, any further discussion and/or seconds on -vote, please. ] After reading all the recent posts about the GFDL on debian-vote, I hereby propose the following General Resolution and ask for seconds. --8<-- The Debian Project asserts that Works licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License, version 1.2, as published by the Free Software Foundation (GNU FDL), are free in accordance with the Debian Free Software Guidelines (DFSG), if and only if the work is licensed using the following options of the license: no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts If any other options are used, the work is not free in accordance with the DFSG. This General Resolution partly reverts an earlier decision by the Release Management team, taken under delegation in accordance with the Debian Constitution, to remove all works licensed under the GNU FDL from the main section of the Debian archive. --8<-- (The following is not part of the GR proposal text.) For this to work, an amendment which says the RM decision was correct is needed. I will second such an amendment given it is not overly broad or ambiguous. (That amendment should be simple to write: "Works licensed under the GNU Free Documentation License are not free in accordance with the Debian Free Software Guidelines" or something similar.) Manoj: given this proposal receives enough seconds, will you fast-track it to appear before the "Why the GNU Free Documentation License is not suitable for Debian main" GR? -- Fabian Fagerholm <email@example.com> In necessariis unitas, in dubiis libertas, in omnibus caritas.
