I just read there's a discussion on Debian regarding the web site
license, which is the OPL (same as the svn sources on ast-docs), and
many people think this license is incompatible with GPL.
Since asterisk is distributed under the GPL, I think we should take
great care on the license we use for asterisk documentation, so we don't
have any trouble later, and as we clean the PHP specific stuff, we also
have to review the licensing terms.
Here are the details of the discussion:
Relicensing the Debian Web Pages. Javier Fernández-Sanguino Peña
pointed out that there is still an open bug in the bug
tracking system which is about the non-DFSG-free license for the
current Debian web pages. It was suggested to use an modified FreeBSD
documentation license. Some others want to use the GPL for the web
pages. There are also technical, legal and practical problems which
needs to be resolved before the license could be changed. The
discussion is still ongoing on the debian-www mailing list.
