@jamesray1 I've reconsidered my approach. Instead of trying to get all of homestead-guide under a suitable license, I plan to contact the primary contributors to the glossary and ask them for a specific license for that element

Context: I want to include a glossary in "Mastering Ethereum" which is derived 99% from the glossary in Homestead-Guide. I need a license that is open enough for me to use this glossary. My book will initially be licensed CC-BY-NC-ND, then will switch to CC-BY-SA within 12 months of publication.

Ask: I need a CC-BY license for the glossary (https://github.com/ethereum/homestead-guide/blob/master/source/glossary.rst). The primary authors are: @Souptacular @zelig @gmkung and @klmoney . If each of you could agree to a CC-BY license for glossary.rst, I can include a derived glossary in my book and offer you specific attribution in the preface. Please respond to this and let me know if you are ok with such a license

Thank you for reading!

@aantonop at the moment we are looking at adding a CC-BY-SA 4.0 license, but we are waiting for the approval from a few countributors such as @zelig, @hughlang and @gmkung, as outlined in the PR I mentioned before.
