GPL3 Draft · The GNU Public License is an important piece of our infrastructure these days, so I read <a href='http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/webmink?entry=gpl_v3_released'>Simon Phipps’ report</a> with interest, and decided I should give the <a href='http://gplv3.fsf.org/draft'>V3 draft</a> a good close read. Unfortunately, while the text may be sensible, the HTML is an unreadable stinking heap of Plone dung; I attempted to print out a human-usable version and the results were unprintable. So I cleaned it up by hand, inserted a tiny bit of minimal styling to make it a bit more human readable, made sure it was validated, and here it is: <a href='http://www.tbray.org/gpl/gpl3-draft.html'>GPL3 Draft of January 2006</a>. <i>[Update: On Simon Phipps’ suggestion, I equipped the draft with <a href='/ongoing/When/200x/2004/05/31/PurpleAgain'>purple pilcrows</a>, so each paragraph has its own URL.</i>]
