Hello all,

I've posted an update on the OpenStreetMap Foundation's current  
activity on the licence issue to the Opengeodata blog:


It summarises recent developments in open data licensing, our take on  
these, and possible future developments. We hope to have more such  
progress to relate in the months to come.

Just to repeat the penultimate paragraph:

"OSM isn’t just 'open' in name - we believe in openly discussing the  
matters affecting the future direction of the project. If you have  
concerns or, conversely, would like to express your support, then  
please do discuss it on the mailing lists or forum; or, as at any  
time, contact any of the Foundation board (Corey Burger, Etienne  
Cherdlu, Steve Coast, Michael Collinson, Richard Fairhurst, Mikel  
Maron, Andy Robinson), or e-mail us collectively at  
team at osmfoundation.org."
