You can't grant a license for something you don't have
rights to. You would need to transform it in some way to
gain copyright, which you could then put under any license
you want. See this article by CC. [1]

That might be interesting. Could be used to host the legal code and track
bills passed as commits... though that would probably be a ton of work.

I know there was a project like that for the US Constitution on Github, but
that doesn't change nearly as fast.

I'm sorry, but I have to disagree on this point.

You can't restrict what a user can do on a platform and say it is increasing
their freedom. That doesn't mean that it is wrong or shouldn't be done,
but you can't do one thing and call it another.

I don't disagree with the sentiment directed at the crypto people.
But my two cents would be that if such language was regularly
showing up on issue trackers I was subscribed to, or mailing lists
I was part of, I would rather find other projects to contribute to
than continue to run into it.

Personally, I would say that supporting Webauthn, is far more
important since it is an actual standard.

And on Launchpad. Ubuntu Server's installer even lets you import keys
from Launchpad or Github to help get your user account setup.
