A good question!

> are they using GNU FDL?

The repo containing blog posts is, as youʼve already found, is guix/guix-artwork [1].  Its README says:

| * Copying

| ** Guile code

| See [[file:COPYING][COPYING]].
|
| ** Graphics

| All the graphics in this directory are dedicated to the public domain, except

That is, textual works are not licensed.  Specific files under website/posts/ does not feature any licence either.

In other words, nothing suggests that they are covered by GNU FDL, nor that they are free at all.

There is nothing good in absence of explicit licence, since in that way they are not even legally redistributable, but _freeing_ them actually would _not_ be in line with the usual https://www.gnu.org policy, where CC BY-ND is used, and all translations are supposed to be done via official translation teams [2].
