While looking at some closed questions to generate some stats, I came across this question. It asks how to apply a Creative Commons license to a blog post.
It's been closed as off-topic: not about open source.
At first glance, it appears to me to be on-topic: it's about applying an open license, which the help center's on-topic page explicitly allows:
You've come to the right place if you have questions about:
- the history and philosophies of the FSF, OSI, CC etc
- understanding, applying, and complying with Free & Open licenses
- how communities collaborate together to produce, distribute, market and sometime monetize these projects
- what license to use for a specific situation - but please read How do I ask for a license recommendation? first
However, some discussion in chat reveals the opposite viewpoint:
It's also off-topic in that it asks how to release whatever under some license (which doesn't have to be an open culture license)
If it were narrowed down to an open source license in general, it becomes a boat question. The answer would be the same way you license anything else, only you make sure your license is suitable
What do you think? Is this on-topic or off-topic?
