This is a static dump of issues in the old "Flyspray" bugtracker for DokuWiki. Bugs and feature requests
are now tracked at the issue tracker at Github.
Instead of forcing new users into the CC BY-NC license and having them to take serveral actions to change the liccnse (I only found the license reference in tpl/default/footer.html by accident!) it would be great if there were some predefined Licenses. The user would just set $conf['licsense'] and Dokuwiki would handle license buttons, Metatags, Links and so on... If a user wanted a license not included in dokuwiki he would set it to 'other' and have some more variables like $conf['license_url'] and $conf['license_button'] to specify his wishes - voila, no more template modifications needed :)
Yes, I'm a big fan of CC but this is a fair comment - could be tricky if a wiki is accidentally CC'd because the user doesn't notice or understand what it means.
I suggest adding a warning message in the distributed README file and in the install.php script. Promoting CC licensed content is a good idea.
