The York County import was completed this week. Post-import notes are available on the import repo https://github.com/jonahadkins/yorkcounty-OSM-imports/blob/master/README.md <https://github.com/jonahadkins/yorkcounty-OSM-imports/blob/master/README.md>

Ill be spot checking and cleaning up any errors over the next few days, updating the import wiki, and may attempt to generate change script going forward if the city is interested.

All government data produced in the state of Virginia should be public domain, unless specifically exempted by the public records statute. So if there is no exemption for spatial data, no additional permissions are needed. You may want to dive a little deeper into the statute to double check. Also another indication that there is a green-light on licensing is take a look at http://openaddresses.io/ <http://openaddresses.io/> -- if data is there for your particular state, it should be fine.
