   Yes, the corrections *happened* after it was posted.

And the corrections didn't happen because of the postings

   I have no info about whether the savannah hackers were working on a
   fix before that: can you prove your claim?

Ask the Savannah hackers.  The best place to go to the source.
Something you simply do not understand.

   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, for

The GFDL should obviously be permited, anything else would be quite
silly.  And you can use the GPL if you would like to, just like with
licensing your work under the GPL.

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

I suggest you read what I wrote.  If you wish to have a flame instead
of a discssion, then we can take that somewhere else.  You have shown
your complete inability to read what is written several times now, and
it is getting boring.
