I would like to know, under what license is the content of GitHub issues that were created by others.
To clarify my needs:
- By "issues created by others", I mean issues created by GitHub users both in their own repositories and in the repositories of others.
- By "content", I mean all content that GitHub allows one to put into an issue – source code, images, poems, personal thoughts, etc.
What I have discovered so far
GitHub's Terms of Service explicitly mention issues only in one place – in the point D.5 (they are mentioned as a part of so-called "User-Generated Content"), but there is only one indication of things interesting for me: that other GitHub users may view issues.
I have tried to find indications of license (or just rights and obligations) for "User-Generated Content" in the Terms, but I could not find anything more specific than in the point D.5, according to my needs.
In the point D.6, the Terms state:
Whenever you make a contribution to a repository containing notice of a license, you license your contribution under the same terms, and you agree that you have the right to license your contribution under those terms.
I suspect that the mentioned "contribution" might include issues, but I am not sure whether it is so.
