Huh. Really? Did I completely misunderstand this?

My understanding was that when you import data into OSM, you assign special
permission to the OSMF to re-license the data under ODbL, so you need more
than just CC-BY licensing to begin with. Did something change, or have I
just been mistaken for a long time?
