Yes, CC has been introduced for documentation - or I would rather say
marketing / promotion materials (I've been member of the OOo community
council when this was introduced). So you won't find CC elements in the 
code repository. And even in website or wiki content I would not expect
to see many CC stuff, at least nothing really important.

But this raises another question - does Oracle donate the code only or
will ASF also get the contents of the website, wiki, translation database
(wich has some more information than what you see in the code), ooo-specific tooling (OOo
used to have some web portals to support
 development, qa, release and documentation processes) etc. 


reegards,

Andre
