[Lazarus] Wiki licensing

Hi FPC & Lazarus lists,

The current wiki page has this in the footer:
"Content is available under ."

Perhaps it's a good idea to modify the licenses page to include a
reference to wiki contributions being public domain/freely usable, e.g. [1]:
"== Licensing/copyright of Wiki articles ==
As there is no specific license indicated on the wiki, all contributions
are assumed to be public domain/freely usable.
Of course, the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moral_rights moral rights]
of the submissions remain with the submitters.

By submitting contributions to the wiki the submitter guarantees that
the submission is free to use/public domain (i.e. not copyrighted by a
third party)."

This will help make it explicit that contributions can be shared and
need to be free of third-party copyright.

The footer could then perhaps point to that page (or a static/access
controlled page with similar content).
