Re: [steering-discuss] decision on screenshots


Hi :)
That would completely change the statement.  It is the opposite of what Florian 
wrote.  Are we going to reopen discussion about the issue again?
Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: 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."
