Anton's amendment


        Could some one tell me why including the invariant sections of
 a GFDL licensed work in main would not require us to modify the DFSG
 or the social contract?

        Specifically, I am looking at the SC:
>>  1. Debian will remain 100% free

        And the DFSG:
>>       The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must
>>       allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license
>>       of the original software.

        We would need to change the must allow modifications bit, as I
 see it -- since a license attached to a work must allow modifications
 to the work, as it is currently stated. (I do not consider the
 license to be part of the work).

        Clarification of this issue is critical for proper procedure
 for the vote.
