Congrats. Would it possible to say license all the older articles under CC-BY-SA after sometime has passed? I think a lot of the content would be reused if freed.

That has been on the list for years. There are various grungy details to deal with, like getting the copyright notices right (and carefully not relicensing stuff we don't have the right to), but it's not that hard. Meanwhile we routinely grant such rights to specific articles when people ask; I don't think we've ever turned anybody down.

Why not a book

First congrats. LWN always feels home to me. Here is a suggestion: Why not publish the best kernel articles as a book series? Maybe one volume every year? In today's world, self publishing is not that hard and you already have a distribution channel :)
