Re: A possible GFDL compromise
Remember the hypothetical "emacs reference card", which must be
accompanied by 12 pages of additional invariant material? Sounds like a
big deal to me.
If the GPL were used, it would have to be accompanied by 6 pages
of additional invariant material. That is still bigger than the
reference card. Do you object to the GPL on these grounds?
The DFSG lists three specific licenses that are meant to satisfy its
criteria. Nowadays some Debian developers tend to say that these
three licenses are listed as exceptions to the rules of the DFSG, but
I think that is a misinterpretation. I think they are meant as
examples to help people understand what the DFSG criteria mean. An
interpretation of the rules which would lead to rejecting any of thee
licenses is the wrong interpretation.
