Err, yes. I'm so used to type CC-BY-SA I did that once more ;)

I think it has to be considered "CC-BY or CC-BY-SA-3.0", with
CC-BY-SA-3.0 to be picked between the two. AFAICT, any 2.5 CC license is
considered non-free, and if there are examples of files licensed under
these licenses in main, it was probably an oversight rather than a
decision to allow them.
