Hey Evan,

Good question. As you can see from the original proposal, the plan  
initially was that the amendment would apply to all ShareAlike  
provisions in the CC licenses. However, that may not be possible for  
some of the reasons that have been aired on the list to date. We  
welcome people's views on whether this is possible or whether it  
should be limited to just the BY-SA license (if it happens at all).

People should also consider making suggestions for how any such  
change (if effected) gets incorporated into the Commons Deed.  
Creative Commons is not looking to create "back doors" to trip people  
up but - as the title of the posting suggests - ensuring that we have  
an interoperable commons.

Rgds, Mia
