I went ahead and approved this message (I moderate this list with an
iron fist :)) because everything in it is directly relevant to CC-0,
which you can see has been pre-announced at

I don't have any further news about CC-0 ... it is under development and
will be announced with public discussion at the appropriate juncture,
but feel free to discuss the issues Gavin raises.  I'll suggest anything
that veers away from directly relevant issues go to cc-community.

I'm also letting this through in part to break the silence after lots og
great 3.01/moral rights input.  We're working to incorporate a good deal
of it, but are very busy, and versioning is not something to do in a
rush. :)
