Default Bug#583141: gcc-doc: claims "Invariant Sections" in the manpage that are not actually present: isn't the manpage DFSG free?

Package: gcc-doc
Version: 5:2
Severity: normal


The gcc manpage says "with the Invariant Sections being "GNU General Public License" and "Funding Free Software"", however
neither "GNU General Public License", nor "Funding Free Software" appears in the manpage itself, hence the manpage can be
considered as not having any invariant sections.

The DFSG FAQ says "Data licensed under the FDL with no invariant sections are considered DFSG-free as of GR 2006-001".

Could the manpage be moved back to the main archive? (probably by putting it
into the gcc package itself, or into another package?)

no, look at the upstream file gcc/doc/invoke.texi, with its explicit license.

Ubuntu does ship the manual pages including the (invariant) fsf-funding(7)
manual page. Just refactoring fsf-funding(7) into it's own manpage doesn't make
the *(1) man pages invariant-free.
