Licenses of Blog Posts

It would be nice if a blog post on bits.debian.org that state a license
would be posted according to the license. (As it is a bit hard arguing
you have permission to distribute something if it explicitely states a
license that is not adhered to).

For GFDL that especially contains:

| You may copy and distribute the Document in any medium, either
| commercially or noncommercially, provided that this License, the
| copyright notices, and the license notice saying this License applies to
| the Document are reproduced in all copies, and that you add no other
| conditions whatsoever to those of this License. [...]


| You may make a collection consisting of the Document and other
| documents released under this License, and replace the individual copies
| of this License in the various documents with a single copy that is
| included in the collection, provided that you follow the rules of this
| License for verbatim copying of each of the documents in all other
| respects.
| You may extract a single document from such a collection, and
| distribute it individually under this License, provided you insert a
| copy of this License into the extracted document, and follow this
| License in all other respects regarding verbatim copying of that
| document.

I think the requirement of the last paragraph is missing with the
lastest blog post "Debian GNU/Hurd 2013 released!" on bits.debian.org.
