Subject Wikipedia Content

Apache Flex has a Wikipedia page here [1].

Apache Flex wants to copy content from that page and display it in an app.
 The nightly build is here [2].  Click on the “Apache Flex Components and
Features” and click on one of the releases.  The text is not linked.  It
has been copied into the .mxml file you can see in the lower right pane.

Wikipedia content is Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License.  I
recently found a post in the archives that indicated that CC-A is Category
A, but CC-A-SA is not.  Is that true?

Then on the Legal Resolved page [3] it says that you can include
“unmodified media” that is CC-A-SA.  Is Wikipedia text included under
“unmodified media” or was the word “media” chosen (instead of “content” or
“works”) because it was expected to be videos and other “binary” content?
