Bug#115637: RFP: bash-scripting-guide -- Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : bash-scripting-guide
  Version         : 0.5
  Upstream Author : Mendel Cooper <thegrendel@theriver.com>
* URL             : http://personal.riverusers.com/~thegrendel/abs-guide-0.5.tar.gz
* License         : "LDP License"
  Description     : Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide

David Lawyer of the Linux Documentation Project asked me recently if we
could distribute the Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide with Debian. I can
knock something together if need be, but I have a lot of other stuff to
do. Is anybody interested?

As far as the "LDP License" bit goes, the "Copyright" chapter says:

   The "Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide" is copyright, (c) 2000, by Mendel
   Cooper. This document may only be distributed subject to the terms and
   conditions set forth in the LDP License These are very liberal terms,
   and they should not hinder any legitimate distribution or use of this
   document. The author especially encourages the use of this document,
   or portions thereof, for instructional purposes.

"LDP License" is a link to http://www.linuxdoc.org/manifesto.html, which
is more along the lines of the DFSG than a specific licence. It doesn't
require licences to allow modification of the documents, so whoever
packages this should probably contact Mendel Cooper and ask for a
clarification of this.
