Hi,

    I've made a Wiki page that details the expected changes in API 
behaviour as a consequence of the license change.

If you do anything with the API then you should probably read and 
understand this, to make sure that whatever you're doing will still work 
after the change!

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Open_Database_License/Changes_in_the_API

There's no testing API available yet because the changes haven't been 
coded yet.

A very quick overview:

* If you are only using API calls that access the current version of 
objects - e.g. /node/1233 or /map - then there's no change for you.

* However if you do anything that accesses historic data, like 
/node/1234/history or /node/1235/1 or changeset downloads, then there 
are changes that *might* affect you.

Bye
Frederik
