12 There's also the very real license issue. As others have mentioned, that
13 no-commercial-use bit isn't particularly appropriate for a Gentoo-official
14 wiki. So even if the owner was ideally cooperative, while
15 the value of his experience and contacts shouldn't be underestimated, the
16 direct content contribution would have to be limited to pointers from each
17 site to the other, and enthusiastic moral support.
19 But there's no use making an enemy of what can be a friend, either. So
20 please do make a deliberate and continued effort to keep the communication
21 lines open, to the degree possible from this side, anyway.
