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.]
