I noticed that buglabs wiki had no license,
Then buglabs people fixed it(adding a license to it),but they noticed
that openembedded's wiki was in the same situation.

Why do we need a license?
Simply because by default copyright law don't allow modification or
copying of a work.So if some people modify the wiki,they may be
infringing the copyright of the previous author.

Only the previous author can exercise his right(only the copyright owner
can sue someone)

That could be a problem,and it would be safer to add a license for
future contribution,to prevent occurrences of such issues

Note that it would be difficult to ask permission to all the
contributors of the wiki for changing the copyright of their work.

I'm open to every free license for my small contributions(from
non-copyleft licenses to copyleft ones)
