Deborah, the FSF membership coordinator, and I sent an email to the person in 
charge of Floss Manuals, the company that published the command line tutorial I 
mentioned earlier. Adam says that almost all of their books use GPL as their 
license and that he can provide their entire catalogue in PDF rolled up into a 
big .tar
file. His note is below.

This is all happening pretty fast so I haven't had the chance to take a look at 
the rest of the books they have but I'd bet that some will interest some of you.

If Jamal or Elf want, they can take the entire .tar open it up and put as much 
as they like on their sites. If PDF needs to be converted to text, I'm sure 
that won't be too hard.
