Oliver, Dermot and I have give a finally look over the document and are 
happy to now send it to the board as our formal proposal. However, as 
Chair I would really prefer a formal quorate, 4, for such things and ask 
you to indicate yes or no by email before I send it.


The draft is of the last meeting + your changes + we went through and 
considered and clarified what each "OpenStreetMap" meant.  As an 
interesting aside, it defines "OpenStreetMap" without qualification to 
be the database itself rather than any human entity ... may be a useful 
legal construct in the future.

I also intend forwarding it to the Japanese community since treatment of 
disputed-island naming is an issue there as it ties the hands of the 
national mapping agency on how cooperative they can be with us. If I get 
any substantial feedback, I will forward to board.
