What is the license attached to Homestead-Guide? I can't find any license on github. Someone has made a pull request for my book "Mastering Ethereum" based 90% on the glossary from Homestead-Guide. I want to find out if I can merge it and if so how to properly attribute it

@aantonop I made a pull request recently for this for CC BY-SA 4.0, as was also added to the Yellow Paper recently. ethereum/homestead-guide#413
At the moment there is no license.
So it's all rights reserved, by default.

Thanks for the response. I've rejected the pull request (https://github.com/ethereumbook/ethereumbook/pull/2#issuecomment-356115693). I'm glad you are planning to add a CC license, that will help expand the reach of the material. But unfortunately, it is not suitable for use in my book. Thanks again for responding so quickly!

@5chdn I think there is a lot of overlap between the Ethereum wiki and the Homestead Guide. So I think creating a separate guide for each release is going to be a hassle, since there may be a lot of duplicate information, which should be avoided.
