SURVEY: Is the GNU FDL a DFSG-free license?



I am circulating this survey to gauge the level of consensus on this
subject.

The purpose of this survey is so that the participants in this mailing
list can make an informed recommendation to the rest of the Debian
Project.

Please reply to this message, to this mailing list, answering the
questions below.  If you are a Debian Developer as of the date on this
message, please GPG-sign your reply.

Part 1. DFSG-freeness of the GNU Free Documentation License 1.2

  Please mark with an "X" the item that most closely approximates your
  opinion.  Mark only one.

  [   ]  The GNU Free Documentation License, version 1.2, as published
         by the Free Software Foundation, is not a license compatible
         with the Debian Free Software Guidelines.  Works under this
         license would require significant additional permission
         statements from the copyright holder(s) for a work under this
         license to be considered Free Software and thus eligible for
         inclusion in the Debian OS.

  [   ]  The GNU Free Documentation License, version 1.2, as published
         by the Free Software Foundation, is a license compatible
         with the Debian Free Software Guidelines.  In general, works
         under this license would require no additional permission
         statements from the copyright holder(s) for a work under this
         license to be considered Free Software and thus eligible for
         inclusion in the Debian OS.

  [   ]  The GNU Free Documentation License, version 1.2, as published
         by the Free Software Foundation, can be a license compatible
         with the Debian Free Software Guidelines, but only if certain
         restrictions stated in the license are not exercised by the
         copyright holder with respect to a given work.  Works under
         this license will have to be scrutinized on a case-by-case
         basis for us to determine whether the work can be be considered
         Free Software and thus eligible for inclusion in the Debian OS.

  [   ]  None of the above statements approximates my opinion.

Part 2. Status of Respondent

  Please mark with an "X" the following item only if it is true.

  [   ]  I am a Debian Developer as described in the Debian
         Constitution as of the date on this survey.
