We have to decide on a copyright for our wiki text. I plan to migrate
the current ns documentation to the wiki, as well as the web pages.
The copyright on the current ns documentation and web pages is
ambiguous-- none seems to be strongly asserted. If anything, it appears
to default back to the source code copyrights, which are currently GNU
GPL-compatible with specific exception for legacy BSD and Apache 2.0
Going forward, I propose that the migrated documentation/web pages, as
well as new material, be covered by GNU Free Documentation License:
I don't have a strong opinion or experience on the options, but GFDL
seems in line with the overall positioning of the source code licensing
of the project.
Any comments? If no objections, I'll post the notice in the next week
or so. If there are alternate proposals, we should try to obtain
consensus on the list.
p.s the wiki is at:
the copyright statement will appear at the following URL:
