Hello public-html,


W3M has been discussing the request to publish authoring guidelines under a more permissive license than the W3C document license. Several options are under discussion, including:

- that the Document license already allows this under fair use
- that a different license is needed
- that the Document license should be updated W3C-wide
- that this is a copyright and not a licensing issue.

Discussion continues; this is just to let you know that the request has been seen and is being discussed.

This relates to ACTION-29
Follow up on the idea of a free-software-compatible license for a note on HTML authoring
