Re: [steering-discuss] decision on screenshots

The Steering Committee acknowledges that there is a small legal risk
involved for screenshots on non-free operating systems, but the risk is
deemed low.

This is too strong. The fact is, every action any project takes is subject to legal risk. Name one 
that isn't. All that's happened here is that (for whatever motive) the theoretical risk has been 
articulated for (a part of) this case. I'd suggest saying:

"The Steering Committee feels that the legal risk involved in using screenshots of non-free 
desktops in documentation is no greater than any other theoretical risk facing software projects."
