Local community license issue
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have a (small) licensing issue regarding local community work in
service of our debian-linux.ro website.
A couple of days ago we've made a call for editors, for supporting and
filling the blanks in our revamped community website.
Some of the willing contributors asked then: "what will happen to the
content delivered by us?", a question regarding the license for the new
content to be released under. After linking them to the DFSG and Debian
Social Contract definitions, I wondered if I could come over here and
address the question directly to Debian project, mostly because I
started wondering about other local communities and their way of
managing issues like this one.
Is the GNU GPL a decent enough license to be applied to our
contributors' work? Or any CC variant? What shall I answer to their
question, as a community website co-founder?
I am subscribed to this list, so no need to cc me, so please help me out
of this problem.
Since this was raised, I admit I haven't looked too deep in the d.o main
site, unfortunately I was lacking the time needed for this.
FYI, the "work" consists mostly of tutorials (using, packaging, patching
a.o.), guides, documentation, translations (some of them to be submitted
to their respective package in Debian via BTS), some scripts and other
various tools and resources.
