Re: Voila! A compromise!
O.k., but so what. People seem to people o.k. with the idea of just
separating the documentation by a flag of some sort.
Making two separate lists will do the job much better and more
thoroughly than just flagging non-free items in one common list.
If the non-free documents are segregated, put in a separate list, that
will send a clear message: LDP documents ought to be free, and
non-free documents are second-class. Just labeling the non-free
documents in a common list will not express this message.
(If the LDP decides that any new documents *must* be free, as I have
suggested, that would send an even stronger message.)
If the non-free documents are segregated, put in a separate list, then
the GNU Project can refer to the list of free documents and not refer
to the list of non-free ones. So the LDP and the GNU Project will be
able to cooperate much more effectively.
