@Kay,

It is necessary to look at the documents themselves to see what the licenses are.

I think, because of the dual licensing, the preferable case would be to have the editable
forms of the documents (i.e., essentially the "source") retained on the ODFAuthors site (with
a contingency plan, such as SourceForge backups, in case that site is ever closed).

The PDFs could be posted on openoffice.org or elsewhere, since that is not "source code."
 In that case, it would be appropriate to ensure that the documents include links to where
they are found in their other forms on ODFAuthors.  That is a good idea anyway.  It is the
best way for folks to find out about older and newer versions, submit changes and improvements,
and contribute to the authoring of more.

There are print versions available via ODFAuthors at times, and any sales/royalties for those
go somewhere.  I suspect that is fine, especially if it helps the ODFAuthors site keep operating.
