Yes, CC-BY allows modification.  IIUC CC-BY-SA would preclude any more
than "fair use" quantities of material anywhere that is not itself
licensed by CC_BY_SA.  For example this might preclude use of
newsletter articles on software blogging sites if they have
non-CC-BY-SA licenses.  So I am not in favor of CC-BY-SA.

If using CC-BY how should attribution be required?  Perhaps "Geany
newsletter team" and (if online) link to Geany website.

Agree, the point of the newsletter is to get distributed.
