Because of the special nature of the content available on the HacDC Wiki, all contributions to it are considered to be released under the GNU Free Documentation License 1.2:

The purpose of this License is to make a manual, textbook, or other functional and 
useful document "free" in the sense of freedom: to assure everyone the effective freedom

noncommercially. Secondarily, this License preserves for the author and publisher a way to 
get credit for their work, while not being considered responsible for modifications made by

This License is a kind of "copyleft", which means that derivative works of the document must

a copyleft license designed for free software.
