Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Online documentation for Core now available
FWIW: It is not recommended to license documentation with the same
kind of license as source code; a lot of restrictions that apply to
source code do not make any sense when it comes to documentation. When
licencing a project it is good to consider a three pronged approach:
1) Licensing the main code of the project. This might be split in:
   1.1) The exported library
   1.2) The tools (test suites etc.)
2) Licensing the documentation
3) Licensing the included examples

A typical example would be:

1)
  1.1) LGPL + linking exception
  1.2) GPL
2) FDL
3) Public domain

Of course which licenses you choose is entirely up to you... Creative
commons [1] provides an easy interface to choose licenses...
