So it seems I need to make this statement public too:

Yes I'm happy with the decisions made about the license.  I actually 
have no strong opinions on it either way but I'm happy to go along with 
the OSGeo-Live team.

Firstly, am I able to make a license statement at all?
I have authored the Overview & Quickstart for Prune for OSGeo-Live, and 
as far as I can tell, all source material can be legally included under 
a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License for Project 
Overviews, and Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported 
License for Quickstarts.  The text is my own work, the screenshots were 
made by me but include openstreetmap imagery.  I did not contribute any 
install scripts.
I have also made minor corrections to other documents in OSGeo-Live, for 
which I claim no authorship, I just made small modifications to the work 
of other authors.

Secondly, what kind of license is acceptable to me?
Basically, I don't care.  I would be happy with public domain, or CC0, 
or anything which lets people use it.  As far as I'm concerned, it's all 
good publicity for Prune and other open source software, so the more 
people read it and use it, the better.
However, in the interests of completeness I confirm that all my 
contributions to OSGeo-Live may be used under the current OSGeo-Live 
license guidelines, and any future contributions will be compatible with 
the OSGeo-Live license guidelines at the time of contribution.

I hope that's a sufficient statement for everyone :)
