Yocto Documentation files

Hello,

 The Yocto manuals  are licensed under "Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0".

1) Do the source files used to create each manual need a "SPDX" header ?

2) Does the  source repository need to contain a "LICENSE" file ?

3) Should the Project use the International version (CC-BY-SA-4.0) of this License?

regards,
Armin

Yes!

should work.

Yes, it should have one.

That doesn't seem possible as it would mean re-licensing and I'd
suspect we don't have all the copyright?

Cheers,
