HI Anne and Tom, and everyone here in this mailing list,

I do have one question, actually I am relaying a question from someone else
in Korea regarding publication of documents.
A professor in Korea did translate the entire openstack security-guide
document, and he wants to publish translated version as a book with some
price tag.
He wants to know if he can talk with OpenStack Foundation regarding this
commercial publication of OpenStack Document.

I told him Document has Creative Common License, and he just needs to
follow whatever CC license says.
However, if possible, we would like to have some help from you guys =.

First, we are not open source license experts. It is a bit tricky to know
what CC license exactly means when someone wants to publish “translated
version” of a openstack document.
Second, he wants to have an opinion form openstack foundation about

If you have experienced a similar situation with this one, could you give
us some hints or advise?
Thank you.
