I remain unconvinced that the freedoms required for documentation are
the same freedoms required for software. I think the best way to fix
the current situation is to propose the Debian Free Documentation
Guidelines and modify the SC appropriately. More on this when I have
a first draft.
"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
