The original author can release old work or new work under a different license but they can't revoke a license they've previously granted to some revision of a work. And to relicense requires agreement of all contributors, which isn't clearly the case with W. I do understand the moderators not wanting to get into argument, though.)

I believe the GPL covers the software, not the owner's manual.

There is an equivalent of the GPL for documentation, namely the GNU Free Documentation License (GFDL), but adoption of the GPL by the software does not imply adoption of the GFDL by the documentation.
