Lets reduce the cross-posting - how about replying just on discussion at .  For
this reply, I've done a reply all since I already answered this last night
but it seems my reply was not seen.

As I said last night:

Here's a diff of the 1st and 2nd draft:

Here's a diff of gplv2 and 2nd draft of v3:

Those are generated with wdiff.  I concatonated the lines, then used the
command line:

wdiff -n -w '<span style="text-decoration: line-through;">' -x '</span>' -y \
'<span style="font-weight: bold;">' -z '</span>' GPLv2-parad.text \
GPLv3-draft2-parad.text > v2-wdiff.text

...but the output of wdiff isn't the same as the hand-made official diff.
Particularly, for the diff between gplv2 and this draft, the wdiff is poor
and it looks like I'll have to do that by hand.

I'll put the improved / hand-made versions at the same URLs I've given
