Good idea - the GPL seems to have worked OK for the manual.  MJ and I
discussed this a bit more on #koha yesterday, and MJ also suggested
either the GPL or a free-for-all.  For the sake of completeness, the
other licenses that came up in the discussion include:

CC-BY - http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
CC0 - http://creativecommons.org/license/zero/

I now think that the GPL is the way to go.  I've updated the
relicensing page on the wiki
(http://wiki.koha.org/doku.php?id=relicensing); are there any other
comments about the license or the voting process?
