Bull. Michael Collinson spent months trying to get approval from
data.gov.au for approval... finally did. Pity the importer refuses to
relicence even if the data is OK.
LWG spent months negotiation with NearMap and got approval, but not
exactly how we hoped.
OSM(F) is not some nefarious organisation... I'm like everyone else in
the project it doing it for fun, interesting and for the making
something great... I have a "real" day job that is not related to osm.
Mr John Anonymous Smith... the community will be better without you.
Glad the license change is nearly over and we can get back to what we
enjoy... Mapping and building the bloody best map (data) of the world.
