But it is not a question of the wording of the licence, its a question of
the wording of the Contributor Terms. I've not mentioned the licence at all
in the context of this discussion.
The preamble to the CT's state they refer to existing and future
contributions. Therefore they cover contributions exiting in the planet
dumps, therefore you have to be able to say the data in those dumps complies
with the CT's. Nothing to do with what licence the planet dumps are issued
