There are two ways:
1. Seperable additions, like adding a chapter to a book. Probably taken from
2. Inseperable additions, like proofreading.
In the first case, you can just leave them out and you’re only by-sa again.
In the second case, it is not clear that you get additional copyright for the
many small changes (need to ask a copyright lawyer for that). If you get a
copyright for that, you cannot easily turn the work into cc by-sa again. If
not, the work is still by-sa.
For the second case, I would like to have clear rules in cc by-sa: small
changes should have to be licensed under cc by-sa.
Stronger: If what you add does not have an identity without the cc by-sa
content, it should be by-sa, even if it’s combined with GPL code in a bigger
