I just read the compatibility page [1] of the creative commons license,
but as for now no other licenses is stated as compatible. Currently i
took a look at the English translation of the Free Art License 1.3 (FAL)
[2] and found it to be highly compatible to CC-BY-SA. The FAL has an
chapter (chapter 5) listing the needs for an compatible license. But it
requires the CC-License to be compatible as well: "it recognizes the
Free Art License as compatible (reciprocity);"

Can you tell me that this licenses are compatible or not? If they are
not compatible, i'm interested to know why they might/are not compatible.
