Last week Wikipedia and Wikia changed their license from the GFDL to Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0, using a clause added to GFDL 1.3 for this purpose. This makes it possible and convenient for us to do the same.
I won't go into specific reasons that this is a good idea here, but it makes things a lot easier technically, jives with other free content better, and was voted for by overwhelming majorities at Wikipedia and Wikia.

edit:I've found out this is a bit less urgent than I thought, so I'll wait a few months to get some responses on this.
