Okay, we get that, but what is the benefit of being compatible with the GPL?
Is it e.g. impossible to distribute copies of our web pages with
GPL-licensed programs?

I'm asking because we're quite unlikely to ever fulfil such a wish unless
some strong reason for it. It's not trivial to track down each and every
person who ever submitted stuff to the web pages and ACK a licence change.

(Overriding Mail-Followup-To: because I can't seem to find you on either
debian-www list membership list or the PTS...)

     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
