Summary

License the OTB cookbook under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license (CC-BY-SA)

Rationale

There is currently no document license for the OTB CookBook. At the bottom of the cookbook it says "© Copyright 2017, OTB Team. Built with Sphinx using a theme provided by Read the Docs.". This allows users to read the pages, but it does not allow authors to do anything other than quote and cite the content. Adding a document license like creative commons will gives authors additional permissions, allowing them to reuse the OTB documentation.

The purpose of this RFC is to change the notice and the bottom of the cookbook to:

©2017 CNES.The OTB CookBook is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license (CC-BY-SA).
