A verbatim copy of the permission that we have received is here:
You can see the drafting history using the View History button. It was
created using the input and review of data.gov.au over a series of
correspondence I had with them. I believe it is clear, and by doing it
as a public document, transparent. They have reviewed and are happy
with the final version, so earlier correspondence, as is usual in legal
discussion and as waldo000000 points out, is now superseded.
And to touch upon other issues raised in this thread:
1) I generally take "yes" to mean "yes" rather than looking for reasons
why it should mean no.
2) No preferential treatment has been given, if anyone else wants to do
the right thing and ask for clarification for a specific use of
data.gov.au data for other projects, write to them.
3) Having lived and worked some years in Australia, I do not recognise
the description of government officials given. I have generally found
them to be straight-forward and pragmatic. My dealings here were no
Hope that helps,
