Potlatch is still offering Opendata as a layer, with no warning as to the potential problem vis a vis existing contributions. Shouldn't we be dropping this rather quickly?
Also, why is it on the wiki without a massive red font warning?
Why did the announcement about the new terms not include a very clear line on this for all UK contributors?
Why has a clear announcement about this problem not gone out on opengeodata, the announce list, this list, etc. from the OSM Foundation?
I have been contributing stacks of data using the OS StreetView data on the assumption that - having been discussed, put on the wiki and into Potlatch, it was OK. Now I hear from Etienne that I might have to drop out of OpenStreetMap because my user account may not be compatible with the new terms, and that I cannot agree to those new terms with which I agree?
If true, this is a bit crazy.
