Well, we always said "we have unlimited free labour" ,-)

The idea that the new license is somehow paving the way for OSM to "end
up as a commercial thing" is utterly wrong, and whoever claims this
should be hit over the head with a large cluebat.
However the fact that there seem to more such people than cluebats tells
us that somewhere there's a lesson to be learned about communication. It
seems that the new license effort, so far, has been a prime example of
how *not* to do it.
