It may be that, the default license in default setup footer of
dokuwiki is a CC By-NC-SA.

But that was _not_ on purpose, we just did not checked this. Until now
(thanks baud for the notification about this on webteam list).

I fixed [1] this on the wiki footer, using now the By-SA CC license.

I expect it is understandable that, using material being under By-SA
(MDV wiki) requires to keep it under the same license. And that the NC
provision is, at best, counter-productive in a open source/free
software context.

[1] provided it was a clear dokuwiki setup and that we did not change
the footer license, I think we can assume that no specific license was
used until now. Choosing for By-SA was made with the perspective of
the above.

Open for debate of course; we should have been more careful about this
bit on day 1. :-/
