As much as I would like to commit to time line, I just can't. Legal stuff
takes time to resolve and contrary to some organization like Wikimedia, we
don't have full time staff and full time hired legal counsel. The only I can
do is try to keep people up to date on some milestone.
Again, if you have questions, I will be happy to try to answer them either
publicly either privately (my time is sparse those days, so I apologize in
any delay you might get before I answer you). I think my point of view is
known (I believe in the CT and licensing change) but I certainly do not
believe in preaching as I strongly believe that the claim should stand on
their own and that's why we are still working on getting input and tweaking
the CT in order to fix potential issues, which had an impact on the timeline
and will continue to have one until we have a final version. This is
unfortunate as I suspect that all of us want to go to mapping and start
ignoring some legal issues whatever the output is.
