21
22    <para>The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook,
23    or other written document "free" in the sense of freedom: to
24    assure everyone the effective freedom to copy and redistribute it,
25    with or without modifying it, either commercially or
26    noncommercially.  Secondarily, this License preserves for the
27    author and publisher a way to get credit for their work, while not
28    being considered responsible for modifications made by
29    others.</para>
30
31    <para>This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that
32    derivative works of the document must themselves be free in the
33    same sense.  It complements the GNU General Public License, which
34    is a copyleft license designed for free software.</para>
35
36    <para>We have designed this License in order to use it for manuals
37    for free software, because free software needs free documentation:
38    a free program should come with manuals providing the same
39    freedoms that the software does.  But this License is not limited
40    to software manuals; it can be used for any textual work,
41    regardless of subject matter or whether it is published as a
42    printed book.  We recommend this License principally for works
43    whose purpose is instruction or reference.</para>

47    <title>APPLICABILITY AND DEFINITIONS</title>
48
49    <para>This License applies to any manual or other work that
50    contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it can be
51    distributed under the terms of this License.  The "Document",
52    below, refers to any such manual or work.  Any member of the
53    public is a licensee, and is addressed as "you".</para>
54
55    <para>A "Modified Version" of the Document means any work
56    containing the Document or a portion of it, either copied
57    verbatim, or with modifications and/or translated into another
58    language.</para>
59
60    <para>A "Secondary Section" is a named appendix or a front-matter
61    section of the Document that deals exclusively with the
62    relationship of the publishers or authors of the Document to the
63    Document's overall subject (or to related matters) and contains
64    nothing that could fall directly within that overall subject.
65    (For example, if the Document is in part a textbook of
66    mathematics, a Secondary Section may not explain any mathematics.)
67    The relationship could be a matter of historical connection with
68    the subject or with related matters, or of legal, commercial,
69    philosophical, ethical or political position regarding
70    them.</para>
71
72    <para>The "Invariant Sections" are certain Secondary Sections
73    whose titles are designated, as being those of Invariant Sections,
74    in the notice that says that the Document is released under this
75    License.</para>
76
77    <para>The "Cover Texts" are certain short passages of text that
78    are listed, as Front-Cover Texts or Back-Cover Texts, in the
79    notice that says that the Document is released under this
80    License.</para>
81
82    <para>A "Transparent" copy of the Document means a
83    machine-readable copy, represented in a format whose specification
84    is available to the general public, whose contents can be viewed
85    and edited directly and straightforwardly with generic text
86    editors or (for images composed of pixels) generic paint programs
87    or (for drawings) some widely available drawing editor, and that
88    is suitable for input to text formatters or for automatic
89    translation to a variety of formats suitable for input to text
90    formatters.  A copy made in an otherwise Transparent file format
91    whose markup has been designed to thwart or discourage subsequent
92    modification by readers is not Transparent.  A copy that is not
93    "Transparent" is called "Opaque".</para>
94
95    <para>Examples of suitable formats for Transparent copies include
96    plain ASCII without markup, Texinfo input format, LaTeX input
97    format, SGML or XML using a publicly available DTD, and
98    standard-conforming simple HTML designed for human modification.
99    Opaque formats include PostScript, PDF, proprietary formats that
100    can be read and edited only by proprietary word processors, SGML
101    or XML for which the DTD and/or processing tools are not generally
102    available, and the machine-generated HTML produced by some word
103    processors for output purposes only.</para>
104
105    <para>The "Title Page" means, for a printed book, the title page
106    itself, plus such following pages as are needed to hold, legibly,
107    the material this License requires to appear in the title page.
108    For works in formats which do not have any title page as such,
109    "Title Page" means the text near the most prominent appearance of
110    the work's title, preceding the beginning of the body of the
111    text.</para>

115    <title>VERBATIM COPYING</title>
116
117    <para>You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium,
118    either commercially or noncommercially, provided that this
119    License, the copyright notices, and the license notice saying this
120    License applies to the Document are reproduced in all copies, and
121    that you add no other conditions whatsoever to those of this
122    License.  You may not use technical measures to obstruct or
123    control the reading or further copying of the copies you make or
124    distribute.  However, you may accept compensation in exchange for
125    copies.  If you distribute a large enough number of copies you
126    must also follow the conditions in section 3.</para>

133    <title>COPYING IN QUANTITY</title>
134
135    <para>If you publish printed copies of the Document numbering more
136    than 100, and the Document's license notice requires Cover Texts,
137    you must enclose the copies in covers that carry, clearly and
138    legibly, all these Cover Texts: Front-Cover Texts on the front
139    cover, and Back-Cover Texts on the back cover.  Both covers must
140    also clearly and legibly identify you as the publisher of these
141    copies.  The front cover must present the full title with all
142    words of the title equally prominent and visible.  You may add
143    other material on the covers in addition.  Copying with changes
144    limited to the covers, as long as they preserve the title of the
145    Document and satisfy these conditions, can be treated as verbatim
146    copying in other respects.</para>
147
148    <para>If the required texts for either cover are too voluminous to
149    fit legibly, you should put the first ones listed (as many as fit
150    reasonably) on the actual cover, and continue the rest onto
151    adjacent pages.</para>
152
153    <para>If you publish or distribute Opaque copies of the Document
154    numbering more than 100, you must either include a
155    machine-readable Transparent copy along with each Opaque copy, or
156    state in or with each Opaque copy a publicly-accessible
157    computer-network location containing a complete Transparent copy
158    of the Document, free of added material, which the general
159    network-using public has access to download anonymously at no
160    charge using public-standard network protocols.  If you use the
161    latter option, you must take reasonably prudent steps, when you
162    begin distribution of Opaque copies in quantity, to ensure that
163    this Transparent copy will remain thus accessible at the stated
164    location until at least one year after the last time you
165    distribute an Opaque copy (directly or through your agents or
166    retailers) of that edition to the public.</para>
167
168    <para>It is requested, but not required, that you contact the
169    authors of the Document well before redistributing any large
170    number of copies, to give them a chance to provide you with an
171    updated version of the Document.</para>
