I don't like the clause "porting to localisations of the Creative 
Commons Attribution 3.0 license where applicable".  Who decides whether 
it's applicable to do so?  Do you mean that people should chose a 
localisation if it's available?  I think we should stick to the unported

If using TEI produced content as data or documentation then this is licensed as CC+BY specifically http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ and the porting to localisations of the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license where applicable. If using TEI produced content in the context of a software environment as part of the software, associated libraries, or processing, then this content is licensed as BSD-2, specifically the 2 clause BSD http://www.opensource.org/licenses/BSD-2-Clause license where applicable by law. Other licensing is possible if necessary, contact webmaster at tei-c.org for more details.
