afaik i know you can relicense PD stuff as FDL'ed just
like revised BSD licenses can be relicensed as GPL. PD
may not even hold as a valid distribution license


you might want to use a liberal license like MIT
instead of public domain. I also suggest to the fedora
 doc team to consider including creative commons
attribution share alike license and a new fedora legal
 mailing list seems to be required
