Bug#385797: www.debian.org: Wiki does not have a license

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

The link http://wiki.debian.org/copyright.html (which is supposed to
point to the copyright notice) linked from
http://wiki.debian.org/About does not exist.  Also, as with
www.debian.org a link to the license should be at the bottom of, at
least, the front page.

There is some discussion of the wiki license at
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianWikiIsNotGFDL but there are contradictary
statements made there about what the license is supposed to be.

I am hesitant to contribute to the wiki because of this because I want
to be able to take updates made to pages I work on (start or help
edit) at the wiki and include them in the versions of the pages on my
website (with appropriate attribution and/or licensing).

Also, not having a license statement means the licensing of the wiki
may be non-free and thereby violate debian policy.
