Submission + - GFDL 1.3 Published; Wikipedia Considers Migration (

dragons_flight writes: "The Free Software Foundation has published version 1.3 of their GNU Free Documentation License (new license FAQ). The primary change in version 1.3 is the addition of new provisions that it make it possible for certain sites, dubbed "Massive Multiauthor Collaboration Sites", to relicense their content under the Creative Commons CC-BY-SA license. This relicensing capacity was requested last year by the Board of the Wikimedia Foundation that runs Wikipedia. Wikipedia is the most prominent user of the GNU Free Documentation License, and now intends to seek the approval of their editing community for a migration to a Creative Commons license."
