About the GNU Free Documentation License

hi all,

	i am not subscribed to debian-legal and i know that the argument
has been already submitted, but i want to make some comments of the gnu 
fdl. imho, nothing in it can design a document released under fdl as
non-free. we had a discussion about the fact that maybe dfsg are not
applicable to non-software licenses, but if that is the case (i.e., 
docs are not comparable to software) all the documents in main should
go away.

	if that's the case we need to write a set of "free documentation
guidelines" and upgrade the social contract (a vote is required, i think.)
as an interim solution, i propose to let the docs stay in (we all know they
are free!) and include fdl in base-file (.../common-licenses/)


p.s. this is xposted to -devel because a problem like is general enough
to be taken to the attention of all developers, imho. feel free to remove
-devel from answers, if you don't agree.
