While the GPL is fine for Free Open Source Software (FOSS), in my opinion, it is far too onerous for documentation. In particular, it requires a full copy of the GPL to be included whereas CC only requires a link to the website. Including the full GPL for a 300 page book is fine, but for a 10-30 page tutorial, this is ridiculous!!!

Its not GPL'd.. its OPL'd
