[OSM-legal-talk] Using CC-BY as a source for Openstreetmap

I looked at wiki.openstreetmap.org and couldn't find a straight answer 
as to wheter CC-BY data sets can be used as a source for Openstreetmap.

The South Australian State government Department of Transport, Planning 
and Infrastructure has started a small but potentially useful data 
portal at http://dpti.sa.gov.au/data_download_portal/

The data is licensed Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Australia Licence, 

I'm proposing to use the Suburb boundaries as a basis for mapping and 
the Gazeteer for checking existing placenames.

My understanding is that if attribution is made somewhere in 
wiki.openstreetmap.org then the data can be used.

Or is there more than that?
