OK, let's start to change that!

Who is willing to contribute?

So do I, but getting feedback by doing support is important, that's the 
reason why I'm currently wasting time in blfs.support.

No, please stick with a simple list: I do doubt it will be quite difficult

But, what kind of license does this mean?
Althoug hI'm studying law I have never taken any glance into the FSF's 
texts, but IIRC there is a license dealing with documentation.
I may need some time to get familiar with English law, you must know that 
German law is quite a bit different, but I'm going to take a look into it.
