In any event, I believe the recent GR clearly states that, for the
purposes of the Social Contract, documentation is software.  (Otherwise,
the DFSG would simultaneously have been renamed to the "Debian Free Stuff

That's just my interpretation of the GR.  It doesn't seem controversial to
me, since I don't believe that any interesting or convincing arguments
have been made that documentation is not software.  I suspect we'll disagree
on this, of course.  :)
