Knowledge Base wiki license intentionally copyleft?


Is it intentional that the default license for the Knowledge Base doku wiki at http://knowledge.communityleadershipforum.com/ is a copyleft license CC-BY-30? Just curious - obviously everyone is welcome to their own license, but I find that using a permissive style license ends up drawing in new contributors (myself included).

Obviously the CLS Forum and the wiki have been somewhat quiet, but with each new CLS is the chance to turn these into more of the go-to spot for entry points for new community types.

Separately, having federated logins would really help with making it easier for new contributors. Given that the knowledge base is supposed to be a curated source, at this point moving it to github pages and then having using reviewed pull requests to track proposed updates would be far easier to workflow than the wiki.

Just some ideas…

Thanks to for being the kind sponsor for this forum!
