There seem to be more places where reviewed licenses are listed.  

It seems that older CC-by licenses also have a form of the anti-DRM statement.  However, it
does not prevent DRM-ed delivery, it simply essentially requires that the availability of
non-DRM-ed versions always be stated and the means for obtaining them specified.

A safe way to deal with this might be to Category B and not delivery editable or DRM-ed forms.

So long as the work is continued on ODFAuthors, this question does not have to be answered.
 If authoring were brought inside the project, and derivatives of the ODFAuthors work are
produced, that does become an issue.  

The expedient approach may be to simply stay on ODFAuthors.  It also That allows some cross-pollination
among the guides for different openoffice-lineage products to the extent that remains useful.

The JIRA tikcet is still open. Maybe we should ask for specific problems? Yeah, I saw the
list of category-A acceptable items. None of the CC-BY licenses were on it. GOod that you

time ago, but none was available.
