Progress on license interoperability with Wikipedia
Mike Linksvayer, December 1st, 2007
- The Foundation requests that the GNU Free Documentation License be modified in the fashion proposed by the FSF to allow migration by mass collaborative projects to the Creative Commons CC-BY-SA license;
- Upon the announcement of that relicensing, the Foundation will initiate a process of community discussion and voting before making a final decision on relicensing.
This is an extremely important step toward a world in which the free content world is not fractured by license incompatibility and thus is stronger.
