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.

  [X] 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.
