Documantaion License

Hello.

Is there any page about license of the Documentation?
Same as the library (= The MIT License), or PD or other free license?

I want to translate/create some pages into/in Japanese and make them to be used freely.

Thanks for adding, but why -SA-NC, not -SA?
I mean, why do you restrict commercial use?

Additionally, There must be the version number (3.0 Unported, 2.5 Generic, 3.0 US etc.) and link to the original license page like http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/ to use CC license.
