Those components > are already in main. I'm asking to keep in main GNU documentations. You're asking us to keep non-Free documentation in main. The difference between that and asking to "include components in main" is irrelevant and a lawyer's point. > RMS himself gave no hope to a near modification of the GNU FDL. I don't care what RMS may or may not do. Why do *you*? It is completely irrelevant to the discussion. All that matters is whether the licenses are Free, or not. It's that simple. So, to sum up: I don't care what RMS may or may not be doing at this very moment. I don't care about your opinions towards GNU. The only thing I care about is whether the GNU Emacs documentation is covered by a non-Free license or a Free license.
