Until the mail eventually goes out saying "please have a look at this and
consider relicensing your data", it's entirely irrelevant anyway.

At present, any stats measuring voluntary ODbL sign-ups against total OSM
users are simply a measure of how effective (or otherwise) the
communications have been in reaching users. Nothing more.

You might as well use any of the zillions of polls that have been conducted,
or http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:ODbL_Supporter vs
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Users_Rejecting_ODbL, or
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Users_whose_contributions_are_in_the_public_domain
vs
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Users_whose_contributions_are_not_in_the_public_domain,
or stick a divining rod over Kent and say "ommmmmmmmmm" for all the benefit
it will give you.

[follow-ups to legal-talk, probably]

cheers
Richard
