I would like to offer the option of CC-licensing the archive, but this pre=

that to develop new tools to help the site grow. If the work can be commer=

=0A=0AThis problem would be averted with a Sampling - Noncommercial license=
. Someone could log into my project and post files under an S-NC license. =
This would allow the community of CC Deeded work to grow without allowing =
others to make money off of my tools without shairng the revenue with me.=

You can bring this up on the cc-community list, but prepare your ears
for a ear full :)
