[Grok-dev] license for docs

Hi there,

I think we should change our default license from 'GNU Free 
Documentation License' for content to the ZPL. I just realized this as I 
contributed Philipp's howto on releasing software. It came from 
svn.zope.org, so it's likely ZPL-ed if anything. So did some of our 
other documents that came from Grok's SVN repository; we can't just 
relicense them! I think we need to change our default license on the 
site ASAP, or perhaps even just *remove* the license text for the time 
being if we need more discussion.

Another point to consider is that I think the ZPL has more acceptance in 
the general Zope community than the GFDL. We'll also have a logistical 
problem for those who want to maintain docs in svn.zope.org; we can't be 
checking in GFDL'ed stuff just like that.

I wanted to change the license for Philipp's document but I don't know how!
