What about the same license as wikipedia?

Wikipedia changes its license to


CC-BY-SA 3.0
what is left of gfdl

"Specifically, the Wikimedia Foundation proposal is to amend site-wide
licensing terms and terms of use for all projects as follows:

   1. to make all content currently distributed under the GNU Free
Documentation License (with “later version” clause) additionally
available under CC-BY-SA 3.0, as explicitly allowed through the latest
version of the GFDL;
   2. to require continued dual-licensing of new community edits in
this manner, but allow CC-BY-SA-only content from third parties
(However, GFDL-only content from third parties is no longer allowed);
   3. to inform re-users that content which includes imported
CC-BY-SA-only information cannot be used under the GFDL.
