Hi Martin, Adam,

Not mentioning copyright at all is equivalent to an "all rights
reserved" statement. At some point, people might start using the
wiki, whom we do not even know. And I don't want them to add
stuff with all rights reserved to them.

Q. Can I use the content of this wiki as my own ... to copy,
distribute etc ?
A. Hey tonto ! that's why we built the site ! Come back when
you need some more.
This would be some kind of a non-copyleft free license. The
problem I see is that the contributors would have to grant these
rights, not the wikimaster.
