Yes, we'd have to do get permission from the blog authors or forum post
authors to include their work in the wiki and/or documentation under a CC by
SA license.

Do any members of the docteam have experience with this that they'd like to
share?  Is it just as simple as contacting an author, asking him or her to
use their content on our wiki pages under the CC by SA license, and them
granting permission?  (We would, of course, appropriately acknowledge their
work according to terms of the CC by SA license.)
