Perhaps; I think the problem is that the web page is confusing.

I'm quoting "http://www.linuxdoc.org/copyright.html".  The first thing
it says is "Please read the license carefully--", and it
says that it is the "Linux Documentation Project Copying License".

It sure LOOKS like a license.

Okay.   Actually, we agree on that.

In practice, the various documents include their own (different) licenses,
but the top-level web pages make it appear that something else is going on.

That top-level web page should state that "all LDP documents are released
under the terms of their own license".

Mea culpa!  I'm sorry, I didn't mean to misrepresent what you said.

My apologies; no offense intended.
