I was wondering...Can material that is licensed under the CC-BY-SA (3.0)
license be re-issued under the GPL.

I know the two licenses are not compatible. However the clause states:
"you may distribute the resulting work only under the same, similar or a
compatible license."

What exactly does 'similar' mean? Is the GPL sufficently 'similar' to
the CC-BY-SA?
