The default without a copyright notice is that the document
are copyrighted and you do not have any permissions by the
holder of the copyrights.

So there is no hurry.

If we have something which can be considered part of the GRASS

If we have major additional documentation or tutorials, which are
clearly seperate from the GRASS software we can consider using the FDL.
