I'd like a few changes to this page. I'll go through them one at a time,
and justify them as well.
. "We are Software In The Public Interest, producers of the Debian GNU/Linux
system. This is the "social contract" we offer to
the free software community."
This needs to be changed to 'We are Debian, ...' or something similar.
Debian != SPI, but Debian is affiliated with SPI. Also, name the soclail
contract explicitly. That makes it sound more official. How about:
"We are Debian, the producers of the Debian GNU/Linux system. This is the
'Debian Social Contract' which is a set of commitments that we offer to the
free software community."
. Split this page into three pages, a page stating what the social contract
and DFSG are, and then one page for each of the documents. This is
important because it establishes each as a separate document, and also
because as Open Source grows we want to be able to point people explicitly
and directly to the DFSG. [I know that this will take a lot of redoing of
links to the DFSG, but I think that it it important to split the pages...
. Please add (to the page for the social contract and the DFSG) a notice at
the bottom stating that
"Other organizations to derive from and build on this document.
Please give credit to the Debian project if you do."
This is a request from Bruce Perens, the author of the documents.
Apparently this used to be on the page, but disappeared at some point during
