[Savannah-users] Licensing API documentation generated from AGPL3+-licen

Subject: [Savannah-users] Licensing API documentation generated from AGPL3+-licensed code

I planned to make API documentation generated from comments and
interfaces of Python code licensed under GNU AGPL3+, and some text
written just for the documentation (using Sphinx [0] to combine it
into HTML, PDF or Info files). This would have significant practical
advantages for a small project to avoid documenting it twice and to
have the documentation less outdated.

I'm not sure if such documentation would be considered a "manual" and if
GNU FDL would be needed for it to be hosted on Savannah, or could it be
licensed under GNU AGPL3 or later.

If FDL is needed, is there a GPL exception which could be used for the
code with comments included into the documentation, or should I write
a completely separated FDL-licensed manual instead?
