I must have missed that one.
Still, there are invariant sections in that manual, which make its
re-use almost impossible. Especially, incompatibility with GPL is
obnoxious, practically speaking.

Then, I would like you to explain why you think a document with
invariant sections is free for the GNU definition of freedom, instead of
repeating around and around you are not convinced by our arguments.
Maybe this would make a basis for more constructive discussion.
