    Sadly, due to licensing the GMP documentation is no longer shipped in
    Debian.  The package libgmp10-doc now contains only demo code.
  Any explanation for this?
Debian has decided against the GNU FDL; since it can have invariant
sections they reject all manuals which are licensed under it, even when
no invariant sections exist.

Funny how so many hackers enjoy license bickering.
