Nobody has responded to the message that I sent on January 10 about the
changes to the Creative Commons licenses.

We still need to update the Distribution License options in our Wiki page
about conf files!

Please would someone that knows the subject attend to this.  Thanks.

Aside: This revisit to an old thread was prompted by the release yesterday
of the two German Leo-#### modules, both of which claim a Creative Commons
license, but without specifying which numeric version.

Best regards,



In our wiki page for .conf files the section


The links and verbatim strings are no longer correct for the various
Creative Commons licences due to changes in the Creative Commons website.

In particular, the release of

Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-SA 4.0)

and similar changes to version 4.0 etc. See


This section of the page requires updating to reflect the changes made by
Creative Commons.

It should be edited by someone that thoroughly understands the CC licenses.

Existing modules that refer to earlier versions of the CC license may need
to be updated as well.
