    Hello,

    Regarding the wiki page NewInLenny[1] and the possibility to reuse it's
    content in the Release Notes, I'm wondering what's the actual license
    that apply to the R.N ?

    We would have two option to migrate the wiki page license :
    1. Ask each contributor to re-license his contribution under license X.
    2. Use Vincent's idea, described below, and use
    [Include(NewInLenny-oldlicense)] to include the old page in the new
    one (so it remains visible). and content can be move from one page
    to the other by it's author

    I am quite interested in the first scheme, as it would be a trial for we
    can do for the whole wiki.

    We are currently asking all contributors to agree to GPL2
    (unfortunately without the famous "or later" a.k.a. GPL2+).

    If somebody does not answer in a given time frame or does not
    agree, you still have to remove their contribution.

    The license of the wiki page NewInLenny have been changed to GPL2.

    All contributors to this page are invited to relicense their
    contribution, by adding their name at the bottom of the page.

    Of course, unfortunately. (I would take care of it).
