it has been requested on the mailing list for the 'CC-BY-SA' licenses to be accepted by libreJS[1]

there are several variants of these that are FSF-approved free software license[2] and several that are not - the ones that could be added are the

'CC-BY' Version 3
'CC-BY' Version 4
'CC-BY-SA' Version 3
'CC-BY-SA' Version 4

the biggest problem is that there are a wide assortment of varieties in the wild that may be labeled with specific identifiers such as 'unported', 'international' and those specific to a locality such as 'belgium' - its not clear if it would be feasible to standardize the libreJS IDs for each of these - these are very popular licenses so i assume that is probably the reason why libreJS does not recognize them already

to make matters worse (or better? i dunno) but creativecommons is now recommending their own format for license declaration of web pages[3] - so it may be another feature request to support that instead of only detecing CC licenses in libreJS format
