While the code of GemRB is open source and copyleft, the documentation, which gets created on the wiki http://www.gemrb.org/wiki/doku.php is not freely/openly licensed ( http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ ).

I suggest a switch of the wiki license to http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ to make the wiki-side documentation can be part of strictly free-as-in-freedom operating system distributions.

    the new default wiki content license is now cc-by-sa. As the author of most of the content, I agree to the relicensing of my existing work, but a complete change would require too much hassle due to the number of other users involved. So when in doubt, only new stuff is available under that license.
