Sure, so the point is that while endless bikeshedding about the license
is bad, _some_ thought about licensing is good.

The FSF license page[*] says this about CC-BY 2.0:

   Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 license (a.k.a. CC-BY)

       This is a non-copyleft free license that is good for art and
       entertainment works, and educational works. Please don't use it
       for software or documentation, since it is incompatible with the
       GNU GPL and with the GNU FDL.

While nobody's suggesting making this cookbook use the GPL, I think GPL
_incompatibility_ is unacceptable.

Has CC-BY 3.0 fixed this problem?
