Does this, or the new Creative Commons license, also apply to older
versions, in particular to the version included in teTeX 3.0?  In this
case we (Debian) could distribute the ConTeXt documentation in our
non-free section (still non-free because we don't have the sources
currently).  And I wouldn't like to use the new version's documentation
(with its CC license) and bundle it with the ConTeXt version in teTeX
3.0, since that would cause confusion.  That's why I specifically ask
whether this applies to the old version, too.
