Exclamation Can I fetch wikipedia contents into epub and share it here?

Are wikipedia contents licenced for free distribution?
I recently fetched some interesting articals from wikipedia (by using calibre) and make them in to some epubs.
I kinda want to share them, so is it ok to upload those epubs in this forum(under epubs book upload session)?

Yes, this seems to be okay. We had some examples already here. The biggest compilation you will find under this link

but there are single articles reproduced too like this one:

The content can be shared under the terms listed in the Creative Commons Share-Alike license:

The main stipulations appear to be that the derivative work must also be distributed under this license, and that all contributors to the wiki articles used must have their work attributed as they indicate in the source.

I just had a scan through your Part 1. These look to be very useful uploads, but I think you need to at least add the Creative Commons license to each book. I'm not sure what you need do about the attributions, though, as your files contain a lot of material and you do link back to the original articles.

Anyone have experience with what's required here?
