I've been wondering if it would be possible to put a fixed URL on
the tile and/or API servers that application programs could fetch to
retrieve the current attribution string for that particular tile
server? Something like 0/0/0.txt or some-such that we could simply
code into the tile-based clients to fetch the desired string instead
of coding it directly in the clients?<br>
Since we all have to go in and change the attribution anyway, now
might be a really good time to make it a fetchable string.<br>

PS. I'm proposing a plain text string that can then be integrated
into a client display here. Another fixed URL per tile server could
provide the reference URL string so that said applications can make
the text attribution a link going there.<br>

We discussed this tonight at LWG
<a moz-do-not-send="true" class="moz-txt-link-freetext"
We do not think temporary dual-licensing is particularly practical
necessary provided that we allow consumers reasonable time to make
their attribution string changes. We are happy to re-visit this if
there is any strong reason we are not seeing.<br>

To transition from tiles derived from a CC BY-SA source to tiles derived
from a ODbL source will require changing the attribution and regenerating
all tiles so that CC BY-SA data is not mis-represented as being ODbL data.
What time period will data be available under dual licenses so that tile
servers will not have to reload their database then immediately delete every
cached tile when changing their attribution?
When I discussed this with Frederik awhile back I suggested publishing the
first post-redaction planet as dual-licensed as well as one week of diffs to
allow tile servers to continue to serve old CC BY-SA tiles and re-render
over the course of a week.
At the very least I would suggest distributing the first post-redaction
planet as dual-licensed for the simple reason that all the information to
create it will be available as CC BY-SA.</pre>
