There is also talk about making the old data available under the
current license and the migrated and new data under ODbL in paralel.
Though I might have misunderstood that part. How should you choose one
license form over the other when using a mapping program? For how long?
Anyway: accept the new license by logging in to the www.openstreetmap.org
site checking the appropriate boxed and clicking the appropriate
buttons. Otherwise your data will eventually no longer be available.
