Is it OK to put Text from wikipedia in here? ( Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License ) Or should we just put one summary sentence of description here and link to the WP instead?


I think we should have our own short descriptions here and not link to other pages. Why should people use this page, if it's just a link collection to other pages?. Then they can directly google the term or search Wikipedia. ;-) And taking text from Wikipedia would be only possible, if the license allows and all obligations are fulfilled.



Own texts can be made more specific to the DC topic, than the very general texts from Wikipedia (example).
Also rewriting the few sentences probably takes less time than understanding the Wikipedia License.
