As this is a hot topic I need to state that I'm asking a straight honest
question and hoping to avoid lengthy discussion.
If a document contains this license statement, is it compliant with the
GPL3? In both directions?
Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this
document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License,
Version 1.3 <http://www.gnu.org/licenses/fdl.html> or any later
version published by the Free Software Foundation; with no Invariant
Sections, no Front-Cover Texts, and no Back-Cover Texts.
And, technically, is such a document licensed under the FDL or have we
just made a new license which is the FDL + 3 constraints?
The question arises with respect to a literate programming tool I have
written, called newfangle. I'm trying to find out if the "Book of the
Code" may be FDL licensed with such a statement.
(Out of respect for Savannah requirements, I'm FDL licensing all the
general documentation and meta-documentation).
