Generally speaking, Creative Commons's own FAQ explicitly recommends
against using their license for software, for multiple reasons.  That
answer further states that "Additionally, our licenses are currently not
compatible with the major software licenses, so it would be difficult to
integrate CC-licensed work with other free software." IANAL, so I would
interpret that on the safe side to mean that no CC license is fully
compatible with the MIT license (what Lua uses).

Uh oh... I completely missed that when, years ago, when I published a
couple of works including Lua code under CC-by-sa.
(I guess it's too late do do something about it)
