For that claim to be true, you have to find someone that would have had issues
if you wrote "This article appeared originally at GNU Hurd news and it's
available under the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.2 or any later
version and under the <a href="http://www.debian.org/legal/licenses/mit";>MIT (Expat)
License</a> via <a href="http://www.debian.org/ports/hurd/hurd-news.en.html";>News about Debian GNU/Hurd</a>".

Licenses are an important matter for Debian. It's important to get them
