Outcome from meeting

* Asked for a document going through each change and reasoning why
* Gave deeper overview of OSM, this led to a better understanding for  
them of the license
* Went briefly through some use cases and some misconceptions were  
corrected as to the meaning and intent of the use cases.
* Asked for document to go through use cases and explain if they work,  
if not why not and so on.

Next steps

* Jordan is reviewing the changes
* Wilson Sonsini are discussing changes with Jordan next weekto go  
over intents, phrasing of certain parts
* Steve speaking to Jordan next week
* Armed with better understanding from speaking to Jordan, Wilson  
Sonsini to get back with documents as above.

I will have more for you once I've had a chat with Jordan, and Wilson  
Sonsini have also spoken to him. Essentially there are things in the  
license that are from a legal perspective phrased one way or the other  
and that may be a particular flourish of Jordans or relate to specific  
case law and Wilson Sonsini would like a deeper understanding of those
