Documentation Licensing

So I did a lot of reading this evening regarding the potential non-freeness
of the GFDL. From what I can tell, the argument centers around 'invariant
sections'. When originally writing the Guide, I decided against using them,
abd you'll note that the Bugzilla Guide has no invariant sections -- and
thus remains truly free documentation.

Just a thought... might be less hassle to not relicense :) Note I am not
trying to be an advocate for or against, but without invariant sections,
the Guide is perfectly free according to the Debian guidelines. So it seems
to be a non-issue in this case.
