www.linuxdoc.org/manifesto.html discusses licensing. David S. Lawyer
has revamped the manifesto and is handling a lot of the licensing
issues. Here is a relevant chunk from that document:
You can come up with your own license terms that satisfy these
conditions, or you can use a previously prepared license. The
LDP has a boilerplate license that you can use if you wish. Some
people like to use the GPL, while others write their own. There
is a project underway to create a special GPL license just for
documents and this may turn out to be a good choice.
In other words, docs on the LDP do not *have* to use the LDP
boilerplate license. We've got a few on there right now that
follow/have different licensing models in place.
