I wish to share some documents in the .md format and to license them permissively. Do I need to specifically seek a license that specifically covers the scope of static documents, or can I use a license that generally applies to software?
My understanding is that "software" can and generally does include supportive documentation related to it - if the document I intend to share has no accompanying software or code within the same project, but is supported and published by software, will a software license be legally applicable to my document(s)? Would files such as configuration files used by software constitute software itself, and thus validate the use of a software license?
If I wish to allow open source collaboration in the creation and publishing of the document(s), will that affect what license I should choose?
