our documentation. While we are now recommending the GNU FDL and the OPL
1 without options A or B, many documents are still licensed under the
LDPL. David Merril, our Collection Coordinator, noticed that the LDPL is
"not free" according to the Debian Free Software Guidelines. We have to
get in touch with the authors as soon as possible or 2/3 of the LDP
document collection will be removed from the base Debian distribution
because the code freeze is happening in 2 days. Maybe some of the LDP
unreachable authors are reading slashdot and could take 1 minute to
submit an updated document licensed under the FDL or OPL v1 -A -B ?
Another solution is to find volunteers to rewrite from scratch the
