Re[2]: docs etc all gpl?



Tammy, et.al.

I am in the process of converting all of the XFree86 documentation to DocBook.  One of the things 
that I have been asked to provide is a StyleGuide very similar to the documentation guide that is 
now part of the Fedora project.  I would like to use much of the Fedora Documentation Guide that 
describes the tag usage in the XFree86 StyleGuide.

The license covering the Documentation Guide is the FDGL.  This does not allow me to excerpt the 
part I would need and discard the rest.  If you change the license to GPL, then I cannot use any of 
it (XFree86 does not allow GPL).  Rather they use the X-License.  This license is very close to the 
MIT-License.  Daniel Veillard has dual licensed libxml2 and libxslt so that we can distribute them 
for document generation.  We at XFree86 are committed to open source, but we cannot use GPL.

Is there a way we can excerpt part of what the Fedora Project has already generated?
