You are probably right, but what other options do I have? Asking all Users which have posted (~5000 Users, ~200000 Postings) will be an endless task. I think writing an Note in the "Post a Topic"-Page which states the licensing situation will be adequate. So everyone who dont agree to the new license can stop posting and/or writing "My Post is licensed under ...." under his posting.

I know that there where some issues regarding debianhelp.org and I dont want to run into the same problems :-)
