That is gum. What is "promise"? You cannot have such things in the
DFSG. It is washing the DFSG out as the amendment would do.
Before you make any change to the DFSG, you'd better discuss and vote
about "Accepting FDL" needs/does not need a DFSG change. Vut in my
point of view thsi question was already coverd by the GR.
Looks like people wanting to have more software currently counted as
non-free or contrib in main look for chance to wash DFSG out. Pleas
think about the side effects, if DFSG is changed.
