Don't forget to do the Debian Free Images Guidelines, the Debian Free
Sounds Guidelines, the Debian Free Music Guidelines, the Debian Free
Database Guidelines and the Debian Free Video Guidelines. Debian uses
all these types of content for games, Web applications, educational
stuff, desktop themes and backgrounds, dot dot dot.

Not all non-program software is documentation, after all. And not all
documentation is plain text.

we have an Asia Carrera interstitial in a FLOSS game.
