Here you are:

This site says:
| The criterion for a free manual is pretty much the same as for free
| software: it is a matter of giving all users certain freedoms.
| Redistribution (including commercial redistribution) must be
| permitted, so that the manual can accompany every copy of the program,
| on-line or on paper. Permission for modification is crucial too.

But later on says that unmodificable non-technical sections are ok.
