Not sure what licensing you're referring to here. Firebird docs
under Creative Commons are not copyleft, if that's what you had in
mind. Author retains copyright, re-use rights analagous to source
code re-use rights in IDPL. Docs team went to Creative Commons
because "source code" doesn't necessarily apply to documentation.

FWIW, the Docbook sources for the Vulcan release notes (insofar as
they exist) are (implicitly) under this licence and copies of both
the XML source and the PDF binary are somewhere in your house.
