An entire Wikipedia is not covered under any single license. Likewise, an entire Wikisource is not covered under a single license; https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Grant_Shapps_Affair_Is_a_Testament_to_Wikipedia%27s_Integrity_and_Transparency is covered under the CC-BY-4.0 independently of any license the rest of Wikisource is covered by. It's mere aggregation, not making a derivative work.
