[DS-discuss] debian and rms

windows sucks is not a childish statement by itself
but if put under say apache howto to satisfy the
author's thrust becomes childish. if added under
invariant becomes irrelevant non free and non
removable. any fdl'ed doc is allowed to have invariant
sections essentially leaving a option for parts of it
to contain non modifiable sections.

do take time to read the fdl completely

If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the
Document numbering more than 100, you must either
include a machine-readable Transparent copy along with
each Opaque copy, or state in or with each Opaque copy
a computer-network location from which the general
network-using public has access to download using
public-standard network protocols a complete
Transparent copy of the Document, free of added
material. If you use the latter option, you must take
reasonably prudent steps, when you begin distribution
of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that this
Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the
stated location until at least one year after the last
time you distribute an Opaque copy (directly or
through your agents or retailers) of that edition to
the public. 

It is requested, but not required, that you contact
the authors of the Document 

this means that every encrypted copy should be
accompanied by a non encrypted one.

googling on ofb rms interview returned this

debian aims to create a free software distribution and
doesnt need to have far reaching aims like rms. dont
compare a distribution to a visionary.
