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. :)

[--clip--]

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.

So, what do we gain by going to CC? What do we loose? I have heard some folks on Planet objecting to CC for some purposes, but I would need to go back and re-read what their problem was and in what context.
