[dpl.org] License of the content (need for Wikipedia)
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, ...)

Hmm... If that's of no interest, could someone state it explicitly.
So that I'll be sure my message wasn't just overlooked or lost

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

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.

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

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.

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.
