the point is that we didn't want to loose any information in the old 
wiki. But here we have a unclear license situation of the content that 
was a mistake in the past.

This is still an area where we need some work. We should identify as 
much as possible content with a clear license and should try to identify 
the problematic ones.

I hope it is clear now that new contribution are under ALv2, if not we 
should discuss it again and should define it.

if you think you can help here I would recommend that you join the 
dev@infrastructure mailing list and also join the IRC channel #asfinfra 
on freenode. Means become active and help the infrastructure project by 
contributing... That's the Apache way join a project and help where you 
can. In the long term you should get more and more permission 
(potentially become a committer there as well) and
