We've shipped gl-manpages (an old(2006) prebuild version of these man
pages) with mesa subpackages for a while (now a separate package in f18
and rawhide), but I'd like to move to building from the khronos source.
This potentially would include the OpenGL 4.x, 3.x and GLSL man pages
which I we've not distributed till now.
A quick audit shows these licenses:
(SGI): SGI Free B (which is now just MIT)
(The Khronos Group): SGI Free B (which is now just MIT)
(3Dlabs): Open Publication
So, this is all fine, use:
License: MIT and Open Publication
