Hi all,

I would like to prepare Mageia packages for more UNIX fortune cookies'
collections (see the fortune-mod program and
http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/fortunes/ ), but I'm wondering when it is
acceptable to package them and when it wouldn't be, given that fortune files
often contain texts and quotes from heterogeneous sources, and licensed under
various licences (including "All-Rights-Reserved" ones).

For example, can I package the collection here -
http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/fortunes/ - which is by me and which its 
blanket licence is the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike licence
(CC-by-sa), but which contains text by many authors and under many licences?

I will appreciate any insights.
