There are 74 due to versioning and jurisdiction ports, see

Apologies for lack of an HTML version of that list.

In any case, http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Licensing_update and all
previous discussion I've seen makes it clear the specific license
considered is http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

Everywhere CC BY and BY-SA licenses are currently used (Wikinews and
Commons) care has been taken to cite the specific version used.  I
would be incredibly surprised if the same care was not exercised if
BY-SA is adopted as the main content license.
