people have edited a document and you have to search who all have edited the
Is it a real legal requirement in cases of wiki that when somebody
references work from a wiki, he has to find out about all the contributors
of that article or can he/she/they just reference to wiki itself?
Can I use the beta wiki license on my wiki yet or any other CC license in
the iterim? Am I allowed to change it later on?
