GPL3 Draft · The GNU Public Li­cense is an im­por­tant piece of our in­fras­truc­ture these days, so I read Si­mon Phipps’ re­port with in­ter­est, and de­cid­ed I should give the V3 draft 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: GPL3 Draft of Jan­uary 2006. [Up­date: On Si­mon Phipps’ sug­ges­tion, I equipped the draft with pur­ple pil­crows, so each para­graph has its own URL.]
