Re: [Fedora-legal-list] Re: Wikipedia license change



Just to summarize my concerns to the f-d-l...

My concern with changing licenses is what happens to the
already-downstream derivatives of our works since we are going to
change the rules.  I think we need to look at how to move this forward
in a way that isn't going to leave those works stranded and possibly
in violation of the new license.

Karsten suggested that we don't change the license on old documents,
we dual-license current works, and new works fall under the new
license.  This makes sense to me but I feel that at some point we need
a way to transition the dual-licensed works to just the new license.
I'm not sure the best way to do this but for some of the guides we may
never loose the old license.

Eric
