That's right; I gave a link to the same discussion through Gmane since
the official archive was partly broken.

There was a lot of agreement and a bit of disagreement.  For those
interested, it is a good idea to read the thread at gnome-doc-list, as
it is a natural discussion that is continuing here.

Also, I want to point out that the GDP folks have generally agreed to
fix the issues that are relevant for the documentation they're
responsible for.  This discussion is mainly for a general policy and
not at all restricted solely to documentation.

In the GNU Project, discrimination against proprietary software is not
just a policy -- it's the principle and the purpose.  Proprietary
software is fundamentally unjust and wrong, so when we have the
opportunity to place it at a disadvantage, that is a good thing. --RMS
