I don't wish to suppress debate at all, but I think a number of recent
messages here have implied that the Licence Working Group intend to take a
cavalier attitude and would be willing to see half the world disappear from
the map. I think they have made it quite clear that is not the case. I
recommend you read "Some supporting notes" and "License Working Group's
position on when to change over to ODbL":
Perhaps the key quote is: "We will not do anything wild and crazy that could
kill the project".
Please, let's at least assume good faith.
