LDP Weekly News
2002-01-08

   by David Merrill

Relicensing Continues

   We continue to receive document updates that include a relicensing in
   response to Debian packaging issues. Much of the LDP will likely be
   removed from the base Debian distribution if they are not licensed
   under a Free license. Almost all the new documents are using the GFDL,
   so hopefully licensing issues will be behind us soon.
