What to do when Open Source Licenses are not Compatible
 
I'd like to know if anyone has any feedback on a small issue we are having with the license for the LQ Wiki. Thanks.

Why not 'do a Trolltech', and dual license? That way you can let whoever distributes the article choose which license they prefer.

That get s complicated quite fast though. A GFDL document could not be dual licensed under the CC license for instance. I have considered the option of choosing a license on submit, but that has a few drawback. It not only greatly complicates the setup, it also means the entire LQ Wiki is not redistribuatable under a single license.
