Why doesn't this page contain any text?[edit]

This page, 'http://quote.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_FDL', does not seem to contain any text apart from "(This page does not contain any text), as of 10/4/2004 7:56PM (AEST).

This is to despite the fact that almost every Wikiquote page contains a link to that page.

Does anyone know why?

This was probably just overlooked when the initial setting up was done. I have just now pasted a copy of it from the WIkipedia, and protected the page. — Kalki 10:22, 10 Apr 2004 (UTC)


Link to gnu.org[edit]

I like the gnu homepage very much and it's great that wikiquote links to it, but shouldn't "Content is available under GNU Free Documentation License." link to Wikiquote:GNU FDL? The GNU FDL requires a local copy of the license and if wikiquote has one, it can also link to that page, just like Wikipedia does...-- 217.233.215.72 01:02, 6 August 2006 (UTC)
