Mabye I should clear this up.
Debian is the largest volunteer GNU/Linux distribution. They have a set
of guidelines, the Debian Free Software Guidelines
( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DFSG ). The licence that we use in OSM
at the moment does not qualify as free software under this definition,
but the version 3 suite of CC licences should comply. Perhaps if we
want to stay with CC-BY-SA, we should consider migrating to CC-BY-SA 3.0
when it comes out, otherwise any software using our data would not
qualify as free software by Debian.
