Reusing "LXDE Design Principles" under CC-BY-SA?

Hi Mario,

I'd love to reuse the Design Principles on Appropedia. Could we get permission to reuse it under our license? (We use CC-BY-SA 3.0 which is technically the same but not legally compatible.) I see you contributed the text of that page, so I'm guessing you might have the right to allow relicensing.

I love them, and would like to explore the application of these and equivalent principles in other areas such as product design.

Btw, other principles I love are:

"UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things." --Doug Gwyn

and

"If you try to hide the complexity of the system, you'll end up with a more complex system" - Arch Linux philosophy

It's not possibly to follow all the principles perfectly all the time, but they all have value.
