Title: Wiki content license change (gfdl -> ccbysa) [happens 1. jan 2011]
Post by: qubodup on December 22, 2010, 09:51:57 PM
Hello everybody,

Today we realized in IRC that while we decided for GPL/BY-SA as PARPG's licenses, the wiki license has remained GFDL. Since not only (development) documentation but also writing is stored in the wiki, we want to change it to CC-BY-SA (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/).

Are there any objections or wishes to discuss the re-licensing?

If no contributor objects to the change, the license will be changed on the first of January 2011.

As nobody disagreed with the change, we'll move forward.

In case you disagree with the license change, get in contact with me to discuss if/how your content could be relicensed.

Totally forgot about this: :)

Please add/replace the following in LocalSettings.php:

Code:
$wgRightsUrl = "http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/";
$wgRightsText = "a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 License";
$wgRightsIcon = "http://i.creativecommons.org/l/by-sa/3.0/88x31.png";
$wgEnableCreativeCommonsRdf = true;

Thanks for the pointer qubodup :-)

I've updated the LocalSettings.php file with your pasted code.
