On behalf of OSGeo, can you please make a public statement to the 
osgeo-live list noting that we can use OSGeo owned documentation under a 
Creative Commons By Attribution license. You may wish to get the ok from 
the osgeo-board before doing so.

Maybe write something similar to:

As the acting executive officer for the OSGeo Foundation, I confirm that 
current and future documentation, code and data owned by the OSGeo 
Foundation may be used to to create OSGeo-Live contents under the 
following conditions:
* Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License for

* A version of LGPL for OSGeo-Live install scripts

I can't see a problem with that being used by the OSGeo-Live project in a CC-By license - if there is a problem ask the OSGeo Foundation?
