Is this a draft for a replacement? (rms by e-mail)

It is not an official draft. It represents recommendations for improvements which hopefully will be considered by the editors of the Charter.

Version Description:

This version has been referred to as the "libre interpretation" or the "libre/sustainability version" - What does that mean? (rms by e-mail).

"libre" and "sustainability" are more like keywords indicating the flavour of this version:
A version which (1) uses the word "libre" and (2) orientates the Charter towards citizens' freedom to interact and participate in cultural and knowledge production and cooperate towards a sustainable world. The label "sustainability" indicates concern for long-term human wellbeing (social and economic) which depends on the wellbeing of the natural world. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainability
This version aligns the Charter with the vision and principles expressed in the Libre Communities Manifesto - http://www.libre.org/communities/about/manifesto - specifically the last point ("the opportunity this freedom offers for networked communities to make a difference collectively, towards a sustainable world") and with the "Say Libre" essay: http://www.libre.org/communities/philosophy/saylibre

What would be a better "version reference"?
