Clarify possible licenses for official TYPO3 documentation
Official TYPO3 manuals have to use the OpenContent License (as of the date of submitting this ticket):
Ongoing discussions in the past suggest to review this policy:
It would be great, if we could clarify if there are alternatives available, e.g. one of the Creative Commons Licenses, weighing pros and cons, and decide if it is time to switch to a more modern license.

Gee! More than two years after I submitted this ticket, I almost forgot that this task exists ;-)
Seriously: is there anything we (as the Documentation Team) could do to support you?
I mean, this topic is not present in our realm at the moment, but it pops up every now and then - maybe I can nudge the others?

Well, I would still vote for a review, if the OpenContent License is still adequate.
I think, this is an important topic and we should not close this ticket just for the sake of "it's old and nobody cares...".
Give me a little bit time to make another attempt to bring this topic back on the table.

Today this Issue has sprung open again.
Sybille Peter from the Documentation Team has sent me a longer Mail around the incorporation of Content from past publications.
- Keep the old content license for current and old content
- Evaluate the usage of an alternative license for new content
- Create a clear scenario for the usage of an open license where possible
- Document it for all to see and use
