Because I prefer GFDL. I prefer and I want give all the rights over the
document, instead start providing some rights. I feel more confortable and
overall free with GFDL.

Anyway, I'm not sure to publish more documents in the CentOS wiki, this is
not being a good experience for me. Is difficult to publish documentation
here. And after have explained what and where I want to contribute, I was
almost forced to re-licence or change the licence of my documentation (and
you didn't think that someone could want to keep his freedom and publish
his documentation with the original licence that he choose?).
