Proposed update of Fedora's default content license

Hi everyone,

I'm sending this to several lists that might care about the default
content license.

The Fedora Council is considering an update of the default *content*
license for Fedora contributions to the Creative Commons Attribute
Share-Alike 4.0 (CC BY-SA 4.0) license. Currently, it is CC BY-SA 3.0.
This license applies to content (not code) submitted to Fedora that
does not have an explicit license attached. It does not override the
explicit license choices of contributors or upstream projects.

For more information about the improvements in this license, see the
Community Blog post[1]. The Council will begin voting on this on 16
April in accordance with the Policy Change Policy[2].

To keep the discussion unified, please discuss this proposal in the
Discussion thread[3].

As a reminder, the Council posts proposed *policy changes* to and
