Can you please expand on the link between 'being under direct control of 
the ASF infrastructure team' or 'being embedded in the ASF URI space' 
and the legality of the copyright footer on the Wiki pages?

This has been discussed before, and the (c) footer was an explicit 
decision on cocoon-docs IIRC, also has been linked from the 
main page to this effect.

Summarizing the decision at that time: material _could_ be transfered 
from the Wiki to the project, so please don't post on the Wiki if you 
haven't read the contributors guidelines.
