Ehm, Wichert, you wrote a [PROPOSAL] not a [DO IT NOW] message, so I
think we could discuss about it. 

I'm wondering about the meaning of "distribution". *Our* distribution is
the whole distro or a single package? What do we distribute? And if we
distribute a single package too, can we distribute GPL text in the same
place (more or less) and in the same way (mirror or cd for example)? Or
should GPL mean that GPL is *inside* the package? 

Am I clear?
