Hi floris,

thanks for starting this one :)

as for my answers

1. i think its a good idea to have them
  we should try to enable us and the community to give basic introductions,
  perhaps even very basic workshops without too much prep work
  (some kind of basic set for open source conferences and meet-ups/user

  we should also consider if and how we want to mention/advertise
  the more commercial offerings for training/workshops at that place.

2. CC-BY is closer to MIT but for documentation/prose we specifically
put into the public,
  i would prefer to use the CC-BY-SA for the Share-Alike component,
  but this is not a strong preference, just my personal opinion
  that for things such as talks the CC-BY-SA is more fair

3. i would like to start a new repo for talks/workshop materials
  and personally believe CC-BY-SA is a very reasonable and fair choice
  putting emphasis on freedoms to use,
  while also ensuring that enhancements ought to be shared.
