I agree that we should choose an other license for the documentation than GPL. 
As far as I know there exists 3 "good" licenses for documentation.  For more
information please visit
"" ,if you
don't know it already :-). The Free Software Foundation recommed 2 licenses:
"GNU Free Documentation License" and "Open Publication License". In my opinion
we should chosse one of them and change our license (I think we must increase
the version number for this).

Please don't give Joshua the "exclusive Commercial Printing Rights", but as
I understand you this wasn't a question for you . :-)
