I'll take a look at the rest of the mail later. I gave wrong examples.
It is not possible to make a course based on translations from English
and German Wikiversity; because of different licenses. While projects
are compatible between themselves, there are no a functional problems
(like Wikinews, CC-BY 2.5 licensed). However, when one language
edition is licensed under one license and the other project edition is
licensed under another, we have a functional problem which is not
related only to one project, but to general community.
