I just modified the CC-GPL wrapper a bit to make it easier to read, and
also to use it for applying to documentation.

If anyone has time to look at it I would appreciate any comments about
its wording and if I have left out anything critical:



Just a question : what's the reason for using GNU GPL on documentary works ? This well-known license is excellent for software, but unadapted for other works, like books or manuals. For exemple, the GNU GPL v2 do not speak about " representing " the work : thereby, you can copy the work, but you are not allowed to represent it...
Some other licenses, like the CC-By-SA or the next GNU SFDL, are written consequently and would be more appropriate.
