I will be really interested in working on such Guidelines. BTW, should
we limit ourself to documentation or also include any content on this?
That's important because the need of a Free Documentation is really
different than the one for Free Content.

It's a long time I wait for the FDL and, although it address some issues
I find critical, I'm more please with the OPL. May be I'll write my own
licences one day since none actually really please me for all my
non-programming works.
