I'm not a lawyer, but I like to say, that the new HaskellWiki is just a
new way to present the old content. What have the authors (implicitly)
agreed on, when they entered content into Hawiki? What exactly is
"Hawiki". If you had reconfigured Hawiki to be presented in different
colors, with different font, different frame, different design - at which
point would Hawiki have been no longer Hawiki, thus requiring new
permission from authors? Now, since Moin-Moin-Hawiki is gone, can
HaskellWiki be considered as a new design of Hawiki, a different engine
presenting the same old content?
