Hi Karl, everyone,

`Information For Maintainers of GNU Software' has the license notice:

        Permission is granted to make and distribute verbatim copies of
        this entire document without royalty provided the copyright
        notice and this permission notice are preserved.

It might be nice to release it under the same terms as the `GNU Coding

        Permission is granted to copy, distribute and/or modify this
        document under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License,
        Version 1.2 or any later version published by the Free Software
        Foundation; with no Invariant Sections, with no Front-Cover
        Texts, and with no Back-Cover Texts. A copy of the license is
        included in the section entitled ``GNU Free Documentation

I don't see a good reason why the old license is being used, when most
GNU documentation is moving towards the GFDL; it differs from the
license notice on the gnustandards Savannah project. Further, I was told
that documentation incompatible with the GFDL shouldn't be hosted on
Savannah. ;)
