Unfortunately, just because content is available under LGPL, doesn't 
mean that it can also be relicenced under a Creative Commons license.

Could you please either:
1. Note that the authors and/or owners of the LGPL sections that you are 
making use of have given permission for you to re-license under Creative 
Commons Attribution / Creative Common Share Alike.


2. Note that only a small portion of the content used in the Overview / 
Quickstart comes from the LGPL source, and as such, it can be used under 
the terms of Fair Use [1] and Fair Dealing [2]
