GFDL with invariant or front-cover or back-cover texts
Per General Resolution GFDL with invariant or front-cover or back-cover text is considered non-free
How can I check
Lintian help here emitting license-problem-gfdl-invariants tags.
Good license is like:
Copyright (C) YEAR YOUR NAME. Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, Version 1.3 or any later version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts. A copy of the license is included in the section entitled "GNU Free Documentation License".
Bad version replace the "with … Texts." line with this:
with the Invariant Sections being LIST THEIR TITLES, with the Front-Cover Texts being LIST, and with the Back-Cover Texts being LIST
How to solve
- contact upstream to relicense.
- rip the file and add it to non free (like gcc-doc)
