Please note the highlighted part above.

If done in the same way, with recommendation at the top of a page
 'Started in January 1999, the Brave GNU World is a monthly
  column which has since then been released in nine languages[*]
  on the web and printed in the German "Linux-Magazin," the
  "Linux Magazine" U.K., "Microsoftware" (a large computer
  magazine in Korea) and the "Linux-Magazine" in France.'
then I would, yes.
