I was hoping to bring up the GFDL/GPL question after resolving the
issue of modifying the Boilerplate License.  We will likely want to
compare them to our licenses: Boilerplate, LDP License, and the one
found at http://metalab.unc.edu/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/COPYRIGHT.  Yes,
we have 3 different licenses!  The 3rd one COPYRIGHT, is in the
predecessor to the Howto-HOWTO (part of the HOWTO-INDEX).  But I would
like to postpone discussion of all this until we get the Boilerplate
modification issue resolved (as well as the proposal by Poet just to
have a list of licenses).
