[OSM-legal-talk] Putting simple scripts in the Wiki without violating CC BY-SA 2.0

I have a bot[1]. I'd like to publish its scripts. A versioning  system
like GIT would be overkill, because the scripts are short and rarely

I'm not a lawyer, and I have some questions:

1. Suppose I don't state any license, would that implicitly the same
license of the wiki itself?[2]

2. Can I explicitly state a license such as MIT/Apache/GPL? Would any
of those licenses conflict with the license of the Wiki itself?
