Why is this under the GFDL anyway? Licensing things under the GFDL is a pain
because you can't copy between GFDL and (L)GPL code.

My inclination would be to put tp-book under our normal license (LGPL-2.1+), or
possibly a GFDL-1.1+/LGPL-2.1+ dual-license if people feel strongly about any
additional permissions granted by the GFDL (if I remember correctly, it has
some unconventional terms to make it easier to publish in dead-tree format).

If we want to relicense, the sooner the better, while it has as few copyright
holders as possible. Is it still purely © Collabora?
