[FM Discuss] Class Acts Book Sprint (Sept 6-11) requests CC-BY-SA license

Hi Adam Hyde & All,

Coincidentally our OLPC/Sugar "Class Acts" authors have also agreed to 
use the CC-BY-SA license, just like GDK's group below -- even before we 
knew much about their own decision.
Can you make that change here?


Thanks Floss Manuals for everything as we hope to introduce a whole lot 
more people to Floss Manuals in DC next week:


Even if of course our work isn't actually a manual (!) but a much more 
visceral community deployment+outreach booklet, with extremely 
short/personal/photographic "sub-chapters" for entrepreneurial 
teachers.  (As we're not arrogant enough to write the whole Manual on 
bringing Africa into the 21st Century just yet ;)

PS We'll also be publishing many chapters as distinct case studies in 
PDF, HTML, etc -- National Geographic being our illustration-intensive 
role model, ideally with foldout maps/detachable wall poster/charts/etc 
-- wherever genius strikes :)

I would like to license this work exclusively as CC-BY-SA, if that's 
acceptable, since that's what the authors have already agreed upon.
