Follow-up Comment #7, task #16461 (project administration):

So no, we don't refer to the same thing when we speak of "HTML."  By HTML, I
mean text files of the specific format standardized by the W3C.  Again, I
didn't say, "HTML files." I said, "all copyrightable files."

And what are the "produced documents"?  If we assume that it must be something
that isn't derived from Doxygen, then I can only suggest that it may be a
snapshot of a page as rendered in a browser---which is definitely not what the
tarball is to contain.

The license versions of Doxygen and other dependencies will be the next issue
to resolve.

HTML-documentation? Out of curiosity and to trouble shoot: Which browser do
you use?

Just to be on the same page:

tar xzf sinaps_2.tgz && lynx file://`pwd`/sinaps/doc/html/index.html

Why just technically?

> But taking pieces from the doxygen manual to construct a doxygen.conf is
also derived, isn't it?

It depends on the nature of the "taking pieces": when one takes expressions,
it makes a derivative; when one takes ideas, it doesn't.

For the record, the GNU Project
releases examples in manuals under an additional license].

> I suppose the easy way out is to strip off the doxygen.conf and generated
documentation and leave it to interested people to run doxygen themselves.

It doesn't matter who runs the compiler.  The package should take care to make
the result GFDL-compatible.
