Bug#724474: ITP: grub-legacy-doc -- Documentation for GRUB Legacy

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Colin Watson <cjwatson@debian.org>

* Package name    : grub-legacy-doc
  Version         : 0.97
  Upstream Author : bug-grub@gnu.org
* URL             : http://www.gnu.org/software/grub/grub-legacy.html
* License         : GFDL
  Description     : Documentation for GRUB Legacy

http://bugs.debian.org/708946 reports that the GRUB Legacy info
documentation is non-free due to the use of the GFDL 1.2 with
Front-Cover and Back-Cover Texts (cf.
http://www.debian.org/vote/2006/vote_001).  The GRUB 2 info
documentation does not have this problem; but GRUB Legacy is
aggressively in maintenance mode and I do not expect to get upstream
approval to adjust its licensing.

I think the most practical resolution involving spending the least
effort on GRUB Legacy is to split off its documentation into a source
package in non-free.
