CC BY-SA means:
- you can use it
- you have to say who is the author of the original works
- you have to allow other people to use your derivative work under the 
same conditions (everybody may use your published derivative work if she 
includes your name and the name of the original authors).
(please check on the CC page if it is 100% correct)

you have to take care that not all the pages in the wiki are under the 
same licence.
