Dear editors - licensing of user-contributed Wooledge content

Some wishing to use material published on this wiki have expressed concern over its lack of copyright licensing from contributors. If you are a frequent or past contributor to greycat's wiki, it would be very helpful if you would please license your work, by creating a user page and including a notice to indicate your willingness to permit reuse of contributions by others. We recommend either CC zero or CC-BY, as these are standard, widely-recognized and flexible licenses for sharing general wiki material. But really any license is better than none, so please choose one and post!

If you are unwilling or unable to share, a user page explicitly stating such is still helpful.

This wiki uses text captchas on page edits. Trusted editors will not see them.

The Debian wiki has some more resources that may be useful.

This is a MoinMoin wiki. Language packages have been installed for English, French, German and Spanish, but virtually all the content is in English.

As of April 2014, this wiki runs on a Debian virtual private server with nginx and uWSGI. In December 2012, this wiki was moved to the same Debian virtual private server with Apache2 and mod_wsgi. Prior to that, it ran on an OpenBSD box with a very slow Internet connection, using CherryPy with Apache rewriting magic to help out. Prior to that, it ran on the same box using the "twisted" package (instructions for that no longer exist!), with a simpler Apache reverse proxy pointing to it.
