[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.
Computer Science professors should be teaching open source.
Help make it happen. Visit http://teachingopensource.org.
