Fine by me. Here it is.

The rights to the concept for a book are similar to the rights to the
book itself. And so I have to make clear that I/we are donating the
rights to this concept in the English language version to Apache while
I cannot do the same for the German version which is to become a
published book (and rather similar). If that is a problem we can
probably not do this without talking to the publisher.

Well, I didn't see structuring of help as a design issue but I guess
it is. I was just thinking that it might be a pain to work on such a
large and structured document in ASCII-Text.
