Looks nice - as long as orange/yellow is not used along this blue,
that would be ok - but being too near the Mandriva color scheme is an
issue to be aware of.

Using Creative Commons licenses is an excellent option. But the
NC/Non-Commercial clause is a no-go. It makes the thing licensed
totally incompatible (in spirit and in detail) with FSF/OSI definition
of free software/open source - thus makes redistribution/derivatives
of the Mageia platform (and that's not what we want for the

CC-By-SA is perfectly acceptable on the other hand (that's what would
be the most like sort of a GPL translated for non-software works - and
we use it for the wiki).
