Fwd: Re: [bug-gtypist] Fwd: Bug#695777: gtypist: includes non-free documentation (GFDL with unmodifiable sections)
Upstream proposes this to solve #695777. This wording looks to me to
satisfy GR 2006-001 to allow the gtypist documentation to remain in
main. Would you please confirm that for me?

Understood. I have asked higher up and it seems that, since GNU don't
publish the gtypist manual on paper, it would be OK for us to remove the
invariant section of the licence. So the licence would become:
Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document
under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3 or
any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no
Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover Texts, and with no Back-Cover
Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled
``GNU Free Documentation License''.
Apparently, removing the invariant section of the licence is enough to
satisfy Debian's policy.
Can you confirm this? And I will make the appropriate changes.
