Re: A possible GFDL compromise

    You have mistaken the objection.  There is no reason to think it would
    be a small fractional increase, especially since little parts of
    manuals--single paragraphs even--are useful reusable bits just in the
    way that single functions of Lisp are.

Reusing a single paragraph is fair use--you don't need to follow the
license conditions.

    Um, Debian *does* have a view on this.

My understanding is that there is no final decision.  If and when the
issue is decided, I will cease discussing it here.
