== Special license namespaces ==
 
A special namespace for non-commercial licenses, we should port good, relevant pages.
 
We need to get legal advice, but we're thinking that non-GFDL licensed content would:
* have a clear notice at the top which:
** highlighting that "this doc is controlled by non GFDL licensing"
** names and links to the applicable license
** warns against need to be a note about copy/pasting content from the non-GFDL content into other (presumably GFDL) pages.
 
== Special license namespace(s) ==
 
Special namespace(s) for valuable material only available under non-GFDL licenses. In particular for non-commercial licenses - e.g. FAO content falls under this category.
 
We need to get legal advice, but we're thinking that non-GFDL licensed content would:

** naming and linking to the applicable license
** warning against copy/pasting content from the non-GFDL content into GFDL pages.
* be protected from edits because "all contributions are GFDL", and the other license may not allow divs. (If the license does allow divs but is non-commercial, one option is to allow edits, with contributions falling under that license. My - Chriswaterguy's - initial thoughts are to maintain the focus on the more open pages, i.e. GFDL. We could just suggest that relevant info be quoted, but not excessively, and cited. Paraphrasing and taking the ideas are also acceptable - again, its by far the best approach to cite the source.)
 
Note, if it's protected, with a warning against copying large sections, then there shouldn't be any derivs being made, and the "no-derivs" versions shouldn't be an issue. I.e. don't need a separate namespace for CC-nc-nd-sa and CC-nc-sa.
