This is not a major issue but it seems people have forgotten
what the PD really means.
All GNU software is "FREE" but IS copyrighted, which in turn means
they are not in public domain.
The PD software is the one which the author(s) has given up all the rights
regarding the software. Sometimes, the PD authors require written credit.
That's all they ask for and you can do whatever you want with it.
However, GNU software is not this kind.
If you read the GNU copyright notice very carefully, you'll realize
there're a lot of limitations.
