SF-Active Open Publishing Licensing

see: http://codecoop.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=522&group_id=8&atid=116


  • users can select a license
  • admins can add/remove licenses

proposed db table

row type comment
license_id int key, needed for joins
shortname varchar short name for displaying in searches, etc
name varchar longer name, for pretty display on article pages
description text what the license is all about - explanation
body text actual text of the license
linkurl varchar link to more info (GNU, creative commons, etc)
enabled enum/bool/whatever is this license "live"?

possible steps:

  • add db table of licenses (editable/customizable from admin?)
  • add license_id row to webcast table
  • add to publish page (maybe optionally use javascript like archive.org)
  • add display of license to article template
