Comment(by hamish):

 My personal vote is for CC-By-SA 3.0, but I am keen to hear the opinions
 of others in the group.

 as a sample of what this could be like, in r6038 I've set up the header
 lines of grass_quickstart.rst to look like:
 :Author: Hamish Bowman
 :Version: osgeo-live4.0
 :License: Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported  (CC BY-SA
 :Copyright: (c) 2011 by the OSGeo Foundation

 comments and criticisms welcome.

 For the record, I only cede my copyright on original works in the
 livedvd/gisvm/trunk/doc/ dir to OSGeo, and no one else. (i.e. .rst text
 and screenshots). I would ask (but not demand) that others do the same,
 and we make this request on the wiki for any new docs.

 Similarly, I transfer copyright to scripts written by me in the
 livedvd/gisvm/trunk/bin/ dir to OSGeo licensed as LGPL (as noted in the
 script headers).
