If we get consensus on this list to switch from OPL to CC-BY-SA, then
I'll take the word to the Board.  Not that I think we need approval,
per se, but a simple heads up is a good idea. :)

Too late to do it for F11, though.  We could just queue it up as a
feature for F12?

As for the rest of the content in the project ... I would think others
would accept Docs decision, but I think a general discussion on
fedora-advisory-board is the best way to go to ensure we air out any
concerns, etc.

The OPL has served us very well for a long time, I'm sad to see us
move from it, but at this point the writing is clear.  We gain a lot
by going with a proper CC license.

Anyway, sad as I am, I'd be happy to take on this task, if we have
consensus.  I'll include working with CreativeCommons.org to get us a
splash of attention for it, etc.
