Re: Credits

    I believe that GNU with the GFDL is headed for confrontation with the
    Debian Community (which forms a big part of the Free software community)
    over the issue of "invariant sections".

That description is misleading--we are not "headed" anywhere on this
issue.  We are already there, and we have been there for many years.
We have been using invariant sections since the 80s, and we continue
to use them.

Today some people in Debian object to the practice, but I don't think
their reasons are valid.  I thought about the ethics of this issue
long ago, and decided that invariant sections are legitimate.  So we
are not going to change the policy.
