Registration is now open for the CC
http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Global_Summit_2011 September 16-18 in
Warsaw.

Versioning the CC license suite will be a (the) major topic of the
summit, which will launch a long process of developing version 4.0.
How the future license addresses databases will of course be a major
topic of discussion.

Any OSM folk are extremely welcome to attend. Regardless of whether
the license is ever useful to OSM in the fullness of time, being
maximally useful for similarly massively collaborative database
projects is certainly an objective, and this community's experience in
that domain is unparalleled. Summit attendee or not, if you're
interested in BY-SA 4.0 (and the rest of the CC license suite), I
encourage you to subscribe to the low volume, moderated
http://lists.ibiblio.org/mailman/listinfo/cc-licenses where further
announcements and discussion will occur.

Thanks,
Mike
