I'm afraid I can't find anything in the guidelines that supports that
position, not in them as a whole, not in the specific paragraph about
relevant political positions, that talks about 'discussions'.  From my
partial reading of the g-p-d thread that led to this document, I believe
it is supposed to cover interactive discussions, certainly not limited
to email: it could be IRC and social media, but I hesitate in
considering manual and code as 'discussion' or even 'interactive' in the
intended sense.

I concede, however, that I could be mistaken in my understanding, so
I'll leave it for the author of the document to clarify the intent and
possibly amend the document.
