I think you are showing your ignorance on this matter.  Anyone who
contributes code to phpGW has always been required to license it under
the L/GPL.  Even if we weren't a GNU package, the same requirements
would apply.

If you wish to write a completely new document, and you do not wish to
use the GNU FDL, there is nothing stopping you doing so and posting it
on your own site.  The same goes for writing a completely new module.
