Yes, the corrections *happened* after it was posted.
I have no info about whether the savannah hackers were working
on a fix before that: can you prove your claim?

So you're not required to license under FDL, but can license under
BSD and FDL if you wish: to me, that looks like requiring FDL to be
permitted and so it's not "untruths". You cannot use the GPL,

Why is a new version planned, then, if it has no bugs?
