Hello Devendra,

Welcome to yourself and the community at plug India.

Technical documentation currently under development is covered by the
 Creative Commons ShareAlike 2.5.
 [http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.5/]

Marketing materials (whitepapers, use cases, etc.) are not covered by the
 same license. At present these materials are under the Creative Commons
non-commercial, no derivatives license
http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/2.5/

For this reason the marketing material is under a separate and non-public
repository. I have cc'd Jason Hudson on this message. As I cannot release the
docbook sources of these documents without the concent from TSF. You are
however free to copy and duplicate the work under the terms of the license. I
hope this will be of help for now.

In the interim, should you wish to develop use cases or other documents and
wish to release them to the project under the more flexible and open by-sa
2.5. I will be willing to provide the support you need in producing such
documents using the same layout and formating as those available on
freedomtoaster.org.
