Many years ago, Mike Ashley wrote the GNU Privacy Handbook as a manual
for GnuPG. Back in 2000 the license was changed to the GNU FDL and we
did a few translations of the manual. Meanwhile the manual is heavily
out of date and should be updated to reflect the current state of the
project. Up until now such updates did not happen because the
restrictive terms of the FDL made it hard to include content from other
sources (HOWTOS, FAQ, etc.) or re-use parts of the GPH elsewhere (FAQ).
Documentation for encryption is very important these days and we should
move away any blockers for a wider dissemination.
Thus I like to ask for a license change of the GPH to CC-by-sa/GPLv3.
