Licensing update


This box: view · talk · edit

This page is to coordinate and keep track of which Wikimedia projects have completed the transition on their GFDL 1.2-only files. The objective is to encourage uploaders to switch to GFDL 1.3/CC-BY-SA 3.0 (or both).

The following table illustrates whether any discussions or action plans are underway to deal with any GFDL 1.2-only files.
