PlanetMath licensing terms changed

(Reposted from the news section):

All PlanetMath content has been re-licensed under the latest terms of the GNU Free Documentation License, to the Creative Commons By/Share Alike License 3.0. The terms were specially negotiated as an instance of the FDL's blanket-relicensing provisions. The new license page with details and links to the old and new licenses can be accessed at http://planetmath.org/?op=license.

The reason for this re-licensing was to move to a license more appropriate for a massively-collaborative web site, as the FDL was intended for linear documentation suitable for direct printing. Wikipedia has already made the change, and discussion of the issue can be found at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:Licensing_update.
