Re: Re: Question about GPL and DFSG Compatibility of a Proposed Amendment to the W3C Document Licence

Many of us are arguing that the W3C should do just that with suggestions to use MIT, BSD or CC0. But they are being stubborn with several members remaining opposed to the idea of allowing the specification to be forked, and they came up with their 3 licence options in an attempt to reach a compromise.

However, since GPL compatibility is a requirement for the licence, I'm hoping the W3C can be convinced to give up on these alternatives if it can be proven that they are not compatible.
