Please do not use latin on an English-language list, especially
incorrectly. I meant non-free software manuals as manuals which
are not free software.

English is a richly ambiguous language, which means that there
often needs to be several iterations of discussion to clarify a
meaning. Experience suggests it's wildly optimistic to assume
something was communicated perfectly at the first attempt.
