I am looking for some sensible license to use for a wiki. Obviously,
some license like CC-BY-SA, CC-BY-NC, CC-BY, GFDL, OPL comes to my mind.

Alternatively, I fount http://www.nukecoder.com/legal-terms.html which
state (The text itself is probably GPL'ed):
> 7. Submission of content on this web site
> By providing any content to this web site: 
>      1. you agree to grant the site editor a worldwide, royalty-free,
>         perpetual, non-exclusive right and license (including any
>         moral rights or other necessary rights.) to use, display,
>         reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, distribute, perform,
>         promote, archive, translate, and to create derivative works
>         and compilations, in whole or in part. Such license will apply
>         with respect to any form, media, technology already known at
>         the time of provision or developed subsequently; 
>      2. you warrant and represent that you have all legal, moral, and
>         other rights that may be necessary to grant the site editor
>         the license specified in this section 7; 
>      3. you acknowledge and agree that the site editor will have the
>         right (but not obligation), at the site editor's entire
>         discretion, to refuse to publish, or to remove, or to block
>         access to any content you provide, at any time and for any
>         reason, with or without notice.

Which license do you use?
Do you have some kind of disclaimer?

It would be nice to had some instruction in moinmoin help pages on how
to  select and apply a license.
Do you have some ideas about it?
