as you might know, there are new CC 4.0 licenses.
Do we need to specify in the package the version of CC? Like we do
with e.g. GPL?
Distinguishing version numbers of the CC licenses makes sense to me.
I saw eairlier today:
"Licensed under CC BY-SA 3.0 or later."
Do we also need some kind of + as we have in GPL?
Or does Creative Commons contain some part that makes it back and
forward compatible, so we don't need to do this?
There is a license upgrade clause in at least the 3.0 licenses but the
meaning of it is sufficiently different from what some assume to be
the meaning of 'or later' in the GPL context that I think it ought to
be noted explicitly where it occurs (likely rare).
