Hi John,

I agree that changing a license text is a delicate thing.

But there are 2 different texts of the FDL out there, and that link is the
only difference between them, so I guess this is just an old bug.

So the question is:
which of the 2 texts of the FDL license is the correct one?
The one from 'licenses' or the one from 'standards'?

Who can clarify?

Thanks & have a nice day,
