Because you are asking: I always read the word "software" in the
old version of the social contract as "all the bits on the CD you get",
so for me there is no change.

Well, we did vote, and the outcome was quite clear.
We already have more of this quorum and super-majority stuff
then I think we should have.  If somebody did not vote, he has
to live with the result.

And you can always try to initiate a new GR to revert the old one.
As you seem to consider the requirements for changing the SC to
be very low, this might work out.

But I think we should work on freeing the documatation instead of
changing the SC to match current non-free documents.
