Re: A possible approach in "solving" the FDL problem

The GFDL alienates at least one of the freedoms we guarantee to our users in our Social Contract; therefor, it can not go in main.

I understand this point.

There is a problem with this.

DFSG use word "software" which have several meanings. Because DFSG does not specify which particular meaning it use, there is a way to speculate.

I think Debian should close this hole. There are 2 possibilities:

1. Define software as everything which Debian distributes.
2. Define software as programs.

After one can propose update to DFSG and/or SC, to reflect changes which happen around (GFDL appearance).
