[Fwd: Re: Release Update: freeze guidelines, testing, BSP, rc bug fixes]


Regarding the wiki page NewInLenny[1] and the possibility to reuse it's
content in the Release Notes, I'm wondering what's the actual license
that apply to the R.N ?

We would have two option to migrate the wiki page license :
1. Ask each contributor to re-license his contribution under license X.
2. Use Vincent's idea, described below, and use
   [Include(NewInLenny-oldlicense)] to include the old page in the new
   one (so it remains visible). and content can be move from one page
   to the other by it's author

I am quite interested in the first scheme, as it would be a trial for we
can do for the whole wiki.
