Re: A possible GFDL compromise

That's an interesting compromise you propose, and it would solve the
problems which affect only some GFDL documents.  but I don't think it
addresses the problems which affect all GFDL documents: the
requirements for transparent formats, and the "anti-DMCA" clause (the
ban on technical access control measures).  It also doesn't
well-address the problems with the difficulty of properly applying the
license: what happens when someone says a non-secondary section is
invariant, for example?

A few weeks ago, on a Friday, you said that you'd take the weekend to
think about it and try to propose a set of Debian Free Documentation
Guidelines on Monday.  I'd be interested to see the output of that
thought process: since I haven't seed a Goerzen FDG, I'd like to know
why you didn't come up with one, and what complexities made it hard --
or did you just come up with a rephrasing of the DFSG?
