to permissive (i.e., it is at least as permissive as modified BSD) and it allows derivative
works, of course.

We renamed the "Apache Software License, v1.1" to "Apache License,
v2.0" for the basic reason that we wanted to cover documentation, too.
AFAIK, all documentation coming out of the ASF is licensed under ALv2.

Would we be okay with CC licenses? Unsure, to be honest. I think that
we certainly could be okay with it: certain forms of the CC license
palette match our permissive ideals, and they are also modern,
well-considered licenses. I'm not sure the question has come up, so we
have no policy that I'm aware of.
