Wiki License

The license of content of this wiki is CC-BY-SA 3.0. More info on older licenses and the phasing out of GNU FDL 1.2 below.

Older Licenses

The old license for the wiki was GNU Free Documentation License 1.2, without an "or any later version" option, and which was not compatible with the more common CC-BY-SA license (CC-BY-SA 3.0 in its latest form). This made the content unable to be shared in either direction with wikis using the more common CC-BY-SA license. The license of the wiki was therefore adapted and a dual licensing was introduced on April 17, 2010. The GNU FDL will be phased out as its original authors also suggest to move to the adaption of the CC-BY-SA license. Later versions of the GNU FDL are compatible with the CC-BY-SA and content can be moved between licenses.

Switch to newer licensing

  1. Contributors, please give permission for the adaption of content by signing below.
  2. Older content licensed exclusively under GNU FDL 1.2 will be phased out and single CC-BY-SA licensing introduced

Reuse content

Anything before April 17, 2010 is possibly under the GNU FDL 1.2 license only. The page must be checked before reusing content.
