*As long as the decision is taken according to rules*...

If you mean this, well, I have to say, again, that this is like claiming
that the Debian Project always automatically abides by its SC, whatever
it does.

And we can also disagree in the sense that we think a decision is

Well, I made a detailed analysis of the issues I see in CC-by(-sa)-v3.0
Just saying that they are "in spirit the same as GPL" is *not* a
convincing rebuttal of my arguments, sorry.
Other replies seen on this list are not convincing rebuttals either.
