digitalmars.D - [dpl.org] License of the content (need for Wikipedia)

reply "Alexander Malahov" <anm programmer.net> writes:
Hello everyone,

I want to add D logo to its wikipedia's article, but it requires 
license [1].

Also, russian D wiki page relys havily on the articles from the 
dpl.org (for what I've checked, 95% of the content is just 
translation). So, it would be nice, if content of the whole site 
would have some permissive license.

I'm not sure how this works, but I think you have following 
options:
1. send "Declaration of consent for all enquiries" to wikimedia 
[2]
2. add comment to the <image> in the html source
3. add comment in the beginnig of all pages' html, just under 
copyright

Licenses recommended for images: 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:File_copyright_tags#For_image_creators

List of all free licenses:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:File_copyright_tags/Free_licenses

Recommended is Creative Commons 3.0 Attribution-ShareAlike [3], 
it's used for wikipedia's articles.

In case you'll choose CC, but not sure which one suits best, here 
is handy helper:
http://creativecommons.org/choose/

[1] I think it would be ok to use it under "fair use" 
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Fair_use), but that will 
preclude uploading of the logo to Wikimedia Commons, hence will 
require separate upload for every language (en, ru, fr, ...)

I certainly don't mind using the D logo on the Wikipedia, I'm just not sure what to do about it.

Feel free to tell me [1] when you'll decide on license, and I'll take care of upload request and editing entry. [1] anm at programmer dot net

Just to clarify - Wikimedia Commons won't accept image for upload without appropriate license.

Just pick one and do a pull request for it.

Should it be for * all content (I think, it will be useful - e.g. for citations), * or the logo only for now ? And b.t.w., there is no license on the code of the site.

Just the logo for now. The D library code is all Boost licensed.

In my case it's "can't help with that". Can't imagine anyone would mind having the logo in wikipedia though.

Ok. I plan to do this within 1 week.

I meant javascript in the sources of dlang.org. Not saying this is important, but just in case.
