Add license statement to Grafana dashboards
Open, LowPublic

Description

I could not find any license statement on https://grafana.wikimedia.org/ or any of the pages there. Would be great if this could be clarified.

Since we're talking data, I hope this can actually be CC0 rather than the usual default of CC BY-SA.

@Jrogers-WMF My understanding would be that Grafana dashboards, (for example https://grafana.wikimedia.org/d/000000278/mysql-aggregated ) are factual data (metrics, numbers) and/or images generated automatically by machines, and have no copyright (output of programs is not a derivative work unless it has subtantial contents of the original program), but could you agree with this so we can fullfill the above request? Please contact me if you need more context.

it sounds to me like the argument that this would not be copyrighted anywhere could be true
