GADM is still under a non-commercial license. I don't know who said they
were going to investigate, so you'd have to ask them, but I doubt
anything came of it. Independently of that, we got permission for some
datasets from GADM after the fact of a bad import, but this does not
mean we can import anything new.

I don't see anything that says the admin 1 theme is derived from GADM. I
can see it listed in resources, but that's not a list of sources.
