For all matters the news item I wrote in 2017 can be distributed under that 
license (and also under the GFDL if you prefer).

Yeah, but see what I had said above.

However, if the consensus is that we should have such a line, see
attached patch for GLEP 42.

For better consistency, we could also add a 'License' tag to the news
items.

[gentoo-dev] License of news items

2020-12-26 Thread Ulrich Mueller
The gentoo-news repository requires a Signed-off-by line in the commit,
while news items don't have any license information. So technically,
these commits aren't compliant with GLEP 76.

The simplest way to fix this would be adding a README file in the
top-level dir of the repository, see patch below.

This would apply retroactively since 2018-10-21 (when GLEP 76 was marked
as Active). I am going to file a bug for authors to acknowledge that
their news items can be distributed under CC-BY-SA-4.0.

Alternatively, we could add a new header line with license information
to the items themselves, but that would be more complicated with (IMHO)
little gain.
