Dear Board members,
I'm writing as user and admin of the German Wikinews. One day I edited
the local copyright page and asserted, that the Wikimedia Foundation
Inc. decided on September 25th, 2005 to implement the CC-BY 2.5 license
in all Wikinews projects. Recently another admin answers on the question
of an third party webmaster, what he has to do by copying Wikinews
content on his site, with "terming Wikinews as author".
At the moment I don't know exactly, if there was a Board decision on
September 25th, 2005 and I don't know the result of the decision and
perfectly I don't know wherefrom I got that date.
My problem is that on every document on Foundation sites or in mails on
the foundation list, I found just "CC-BY 2.5". On the other hand on
are under the subheading "CC-BY 2.5" the words "with the attribution to
the Wiki" etc.
My question is now, what did the Board decided exactly? After that, I
could implement it to the local wiki with the knowledge to write the
With best regards
