10 Your problem is based on a misconception, because you're latching on
11 to a couple of remarks made in the thread that are not at all central
12 to our reasons for starting an official Gentoo Wiki. It's not about
13 hijacking your content. We already stated that we prefer to stick
14 with the license used for most other Gentoo documentation, which
15 prevents simply copying your content. So you don't need to worry
16 about that.
