Interesting link via google:

    The FOLDOC computing dictionary has been licenced to us under GFDL
    without invariant sections. We have incorporated many articles
    from them. Two weeks ago, somebody asked me whether the material
    from our TeX article (http://www.wikipedia.com/wiki/TeX), which
    was originally based on FOLDOC's but has since grown considerably,
    could be reintegrated into FOLDOC. The answer is: only if they put
    our Wikipedia table into the FOLDOC entry, which they are unlikely
    to do because it doesn't really fit with their article formatting.
