We encourage attribution of Wikipedia articles as:

"This article uses material from the Wikipedia article "[[Metasyntactic 
variable]]", which is released under the 
[http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ Creative Commons 
Attribution-Share-Alike License 3.0].

i.e. to the project not the authors…
