If you changed the licence to be DFSG compliant, I would be happy to

could be merged to Debian's.

GFDL is considered DFSG compliant as long as the document doesn't have
unmodifiable parts:


This is, in fact, the version of the GFDL used by the NewbieDOC project since 2001.

It is easy enough specifically to dual-licence an article (GFDL + GPL). Doing this has made it possible for some of the NewbieDOC content to be included in the Debian Reference (which requires GPL). It would be very difficult to re-licence all the work in either NewbieDOC or Debian Reference - tracing all the contributors (past and present) and obtaining permission would be very difficult.
