One of the things I would really love is to see Debian and Ubuntu share documentation, as many of the documentation written for Debian can be adapted for Ubuntu and viceversa . However, the current licensing used in documents in Ubuntu hinder this: - the official documentation is licensed under the Creactive Commons ShareAlike license, this is considered non-free by debian-legal. For more information see debian-legal archives or http://people.debian.org/~evan/ccsummary.html - the documentation at the wiki doesn't have an explicit license. The "Legal" footnote points to some rather generic legal information which, in absense of explicit permission, makes the Wiki documentation non-free. Most, if not all already, documentation in the DDP is GPLd. If Ubuntu's licensing were to change (say to a MIT/BSD/GPL license) we would be able to share more documention amongst both projects. Unfortunately that's not currently the case. Which is a pity... Regards Javier  Actually, the same could be said for other GNU/Linux distributions such as Fedora too...
