No.  All documents within the Fedora Documentation Project are licensed under 
the OPL 1.0 without options.  More on our licensing and other legal details 
can be found in the Legal section of the wiki:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal

If you have questions about the license or why we use it, feel free to ask.

We have plenty of draft documents that are completely accessible to the 
public.  This could join them in its current form.  We can work on preparing 
it for FC6 and can move it to a published state whenever it is ready.

The beauty of both of these is that they provide revision control.  We can fix 
almost any screw-up.  Still, we'd be happy to answer any questions before you 
have to resort to experimentation.

I've added you to the wiki's EditGroup, which should be enough to get you 
started.  If you agree to the licensing, we can further develop your document 
in the wiki before we even begin to worry about CVS.
