The Gnome documentation team is also moving to CC BY SA 3.0,
away from the GFDL.  I hope this will help downstream changes
or any upstreaming you might want to do in the future.

By the way, I don't know if any of the documentation you make
contains non-trivial code, but we were concerned about license
restrictions for code, and we got the following boilerplate
from the fine people at the SFLC:

"This documentation is licensed under [licenses].

As a special exception, the copyright holders give you permission to
copy, modify, and distribute the example code contained in this
documentation under the terms of your choosing, without restriction."
