     20There several dozen contributors to this wiki, but we can conceivably track them all down and ask them to re-license their old work to drop the NC clause.  The [wiki:smo/licensing/author-transition-approval list of pre-transition wiki authors] shows all wiki page authors before the cutoff.  If you're among them, and you're willing to re-license your pre-transition wiki page edits (and ticket content) under CC-BY-SA as well, please edit [wiki:smo/licensing/author-transition-approval your name on the list] and indicate your willingness to re-license.
     21
     22If we can track down and get consent from all the prior authors, we'll update this page (and the site footer) to indicate that all wiki content (past and present) is CC-BY-SA.

     30Dear Friends and Family of MF/PL:

    2032All wiki content contributed to {{{support.mayfirst.org}}} is owned collectively by its authors, about 50 of us all together. Recently, the core support team of MF/PL has discussed the political impact of licensing this content differently -- making it more open 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]}}}.
