           Summary: Allow customizing the data license url and text in
                    copyright message
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master

          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: WikidataRepo
    Classification: Unclassified

Some Wikibase instances (e.g. Wikidata) may have a different license covering
data namespaces vs. wikitext.

The copyright message used in EntityView (for the popup message) and in special
pages inserts $wgRightsUrl and $wgRightsText, which then assumes a single
license covering the entire wiki.

For Wikidata, $wgRightsUrl and $wgRightsText are used to cover the non-data
namespaces (CC-BY-SA 3.0) so we can't just insert those into the data
"copyright" messages.

Instead, we should have additional settings for specifying license (url + text)
for data and use those. Those settings can default to $wgRightsUrl and
$wgRightsText or be customised depending on the wiki's requirements.
