    14 Each wiki edit contributed to {{{support.mayfirst.org}}} is owned by its author individually, but is licensed under a common license that enables and encourages re-use of the entire web site.  Recently, the core support team of MF/PL has discussed the political impact of licensing this content differently -- making it more free by dropping the Non-commercial clause. When the site was created, we initially used a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike{{{[0]}}} license.  As of August 2011, we're preparing to drop the Non-Commercial clause for new contributions to this web site{{{[1]}}}.
     14We appreciate your edits to the wiki and your use of the public
     15ticketing system!  This is a notice about an upcoming licensing change
     16and a request for help re-licensing old content.
    1517
    16 Our hope is to track down and get consent from all of our contributing authors so that we can change the site's documentation to indicate that all wiki content (past and present) is CC-BY-SA. If you're OK with re-licensing your old contributions, put an "OK" next to your OpenID here:

     21Each wiki edit contributed to support.mayfirst.org is owned by its
     22author individually, but is licensed under a common license that
     23enables and encourages re-use of the entire web site.  Recently, the

     25licensing this content differently -- making it more free by dropping
     26the Non-commercial clause.

    20 Re-licensing your old contriubtions is your choice, of course; if you prefer to keep the -NC- clause on the old content, that's your decision.  If you're not sure, we'd be happy to discuss it with you.
     28When the site was created, we initially used a Creative Commons
     29Attribution Non-Commercial Share-Alike[0] license (CC-BY-NC-SA).  As
     30of September 2011, we are preparing to drop the Non-Commercial clause
     31for new contributions to this web site[1], making new contributions
     32just Attribution Share-Alike (CC-BY-SA).

    22 If you think there are serious problems with adopting CC-BY-SA for future contributions, please let us know as soon as you can, since this process is already underway.
     34Our hope is to track down and get consent from all of our contributing
     35authors so that we can change the site to indicate that all wiki
     36content (past and present) is CC-BY-SA.  But we need past contributors
     37to agree to this relicensing for it to happen.
