As Sue has mentioned, the board earlier agreed on a statement regarding 
the license transition, which is as follows:

The Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation invites the Wikimedia 
community to vote on this proposal to license Wikimedia material so it 
is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license 
(CC-BY-SA), while retaining dual licensing with the GNU Free 
Documentation License. The Board has evaluated possible licensing 
options for Wikimedia material, and believes that this proposal is the 
best available path towards achieving our collective goal to collect, 
develop and disseminate educational material, and make it available to 
people everywhere, free of charge, in perpetuity.
