You kind of^w^w convinced me too, to keep the kursdok :)

But...

[5 deleted (but interesting) paragraphs about ITIL, how+why it was founded...]

.. I think you / we / the norwegian government is on a wrong track or throwing 
money out of the window, by founding the ITIL book (as it is), which is 
written in norwegian instead of english. Being an international _and_ 
volunteer based project, it doesnt make sense for us and/or isnt possible to 
maintain the non-english ITIL book.

Let me quote some of those paragraphs:

So kursdok should be included in the ITIL document. Fine by me, I couldn't 
care less (literally), as it's completly useless to me and also useless for 
my work on debian-edu. 

But, if someone who speaks the language, copies parts of the ITIL book and 
kursdok into the new documentation (the one at 
http://wiki.skolelinux.no/DebianEdu/Documentation/Etch/) - then those efforts 
founded by the norwegian government might still be relevant in 2008 and not 
describe something which was up2date in 2004 or 2005 (where DebianEdu was 
based on woody (?))

And, thanks to you relicencing the kursdok to GPL, this is now possible. Yay!

But, I haven't found the original svn-location of the kursdok, so I couldnt 
execute the licence switch to GPL there. Anybody an idea where it is?

svn+ssh://svn.debian.org/svn/debian-edu/trunk/src/debian-edu-doc/documentation/norwegian/kurs/
is what I know about, but this only has the .html and the .pdf file, no source 
files :(

So it's kind of hard to change the licence there - ___which___ ___we___ 
___need___ ___to___ ___do___. Otherwise debian-edu-doc will not make it into 
debian-main (and we cant really ship it either...)
