I'll go forward using this model.

Along those lines, if we bring in a section of documentation (say, for
pkgsrc or rc or etc.) from the NetBSD Guide, we're probably going to have
to explicitly mention their license too.

Anyone have a friend/relative who works in copyright law?  I think we're
covering what we need to cover, but none of us are lawyers.
