I have no quarrels whatsoever, any content I may have posted on the wiki I release under the requested license.

"I hereby pass my copyright on past contributions and any future contributions, on this site and any future sites which legally use that same content, to OSDev.org and its agents, to licence as they see fit, in perpetuity. I will make no further claims of ownership, licencing or copyright on any such material and recognize that this makes it legally the property of OSDev.org."

That should suffice for this and any future wrangling over licensing and copyright. All my content submitted here, in the past, as well as any I make in the future, unless I explicitly licence it differently, is property of the site and thus the site's owners, to be used and licenced as they see fit.

Regards, John PM Chappell (Gaidheal)

Please just make a CC0 dedication. The language of CC0 was written to be as widely applicable as possible, and it waives more rights to the work than just the copy rights (For example, many jurisdictions have a concept of moral rights which have to be disclaimed separately). Transfer of copyright is very thorny business, particularly in a case such as this where the people involved are spread over the world. CC0 was selected because it is as good as a public domain declaration, yet was written to cover the whole world. Dedicating your work as CC0 means there never will be any further license wrangling, because CC0 explicitly disclaims all rights that you posses in the work that it can.

As far as I can remember, I haven't actually contributed anything of substance, but either way...
