Fwd: Can I use your GNOME Mines manual in the new help?

Hi all,

I think one of the Gnomine Docbook help authors has agreed to use his text and the license change. Anyone who wants to contribute Mallard can use the text from the old help.

If by Creative Commons you mean "CreativeCommons Attribution-Share Alike

Then I'm fine with the change.

Note that I'll be out of contact for a few days, so if you have anything
