Thanks Larry.  That does indeed answer my questions from the point of view
of Citizendium content, at least if I'm reading those URLs correctly, in

Individual Citizendium authors are not concerned about being individually
attributed, and are content to have their contributions attributed as "*This
article incorporates text from the *Citizendium<http://www.citizendium.org/>
* article "Félix

Is that correct?  One problem with the URLs you gave me is that they don't
seem to be very up-to-date.  For instance, in
http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/CZ:Reusing_Citizendium_Content it says "After
Wikipedia finalizes its decision to allow relicensing of its contents under
CC-by-sa, *GFDL* in the previous paragraph may be replaced by *CC-by-sa*."
