Bug#884224: debian-policy: please add CC-BY-3.0 to common licenses

Markus Koschany-2
Package: debian-policy
Version: 4.1.2.0
Severity: normal

Hi,

as discussed on debian-devel [1] I would like to request that more DFSG
licenses are added to /usr/share/common-licenses and that package
maintainers are allowed to reference them.

License: CC-BY-3.0
Source: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
Example packages:

Regards,

Markus

Seconded (for CC-SA-3.0 unported).  Seconded only for that license; I
don't mean this to imply that we have consensus to include the texts
of all Creative Commons licenses in base-files!

Thanks,
Jonathan

license-count numbers:

CC-BY 1.0                 2
CC-BY 2.0                 3
CC-BY 2.5                11
CC-BY 3.0               165
CC-BY 4.0                28
CC-BY-SA 1.0              3
CC-BY-SA 2.0             44
CC-BY-SA 2.5             14
CC-BY-SA 3.0            285
CC-BY-SA 4.0             61

Looks like both CC-BY 3.0 and CC-BY-SA 3.0 would warrant inclusion.  Note
that the regexes in license-count may not be perfect; I'm not completely
familiar with all the variations the CC licenses can take.
