[Techtalk] Documentation licencing

More as a heads-up to documentation writers than anything else:

The author of the Open Publication Licence is closing up shop and
joining the Creative Commons project:

    I'm closing OpenContent because I think Creative Commons is doing a
    better job of providing licensing options which will stand up in
    court. As I close OpenContent, I join Creative Commons as Director
    of Educational Licenses.


    The OpenContent License and Open Publication License will remain
    online for archival purposes in their current locations. However, no
    future development will occur on the licenses themselves.

However, I would be interested in a discussion of docs licence choice if
anyone wants to use this as a jumping off point (since it's relevant to
open source development, I think doc licencing, and documentation
discussion is relevant to techtalk).
