Can the help page also be referred with version 4.0?

  • This was a wrong PR because the old content published before 2019-09-05 is still 3.0-licensed. You're not allowed to change the license without explicit permissions from the contributors.

I made a change for the creative commons version update to refer version 4.0 in the /help page, and raised the pull request #95.

Updated the license to cc-by-sa 4.0 in /help page.
