[ClusterLabs] Pacemaker documentation license clarification

We're packaging Pacemaker for Debian and this requires a clear picture
of all licenses relevant to the package.  The software part is clearly
under GPL-2+ and LGPL-2+, which is fine.  However, the "Legal Notice"
section of the generated Publican documentation (for example
Pacemaker_Explained/desktop/en-US/index.html) says that the material may
only be distributed under GFDL-1.2+.  Since there are no invariant
sections, this would be workable (if inconvenient), but I suspect that
this difference might be unintended, just the implicit Publican default
surfacing in the lack of explicit configuration.

Could the authors (preferably the primary author, Andrew Beekhof) please
give a definitive statement about the intended license of the
Clusters_from_Scratch, Pacemaker_Explained and Pacemaker_Remote books?
Thanks in advance,
