There was a debate on the OSGeo-Live email list discussing what 
OSGeo-Live documentation should be licenced under.
CC-By was selected for Project Overviews, as it has been considered an 
easier form for mashing up into other documentation.

CC-By-SA has been selected for Quickstarts. More effort is required to 
develop Quickstarts, so contributors in general felt that extensions to 
their Quickstarts  should be made freely available, (as mandated by the 
CC-By-SA license).

For training material, I'd suggest authors should be encouraged to 
contribute material under a CC-By-SA license. (They might want to dual 
license under another license as well).
