How about, proposing instead a license that would please you and others

Would it be better for everybody, if the wiki would be GPL licensed?
Should I change the license to GPL? 

After reading Julia's comments on problems that might appear when we
cite FAI code in the wiki, that sounds much more reasonable for me,
maybe even the only useful/viable way to go.

It's in fact an interesting question if there is somebody alive and
reading mail in debian-legal. Or do we need to prove that fai is a
debian package? - dpkg/apt-cache should do that better than us. Or is it
a subscribed-only list that doesn't tell use we're not subscribed, just
stores the mails in /dev/null as long as we're not?
