Excuse me for perhaps coming out of left field with this, but is GPL the correct technical name for GPL documentation? I'm thinking this might be more correct:
Note on the above link:
"(GNU FDL or simply GFDL) is a copyleft license for free documentation, designed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) for the GNU Project. It is similar to the GNU General Public License, "
"The GFDL was designed for manuals, textbooks, other reference and instructional materials, and documentation which often accompanies GNU software."
