There has recently been a discussion in OSM Discord about source=Google tags
<https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/source=Google%2C 2010-01-21> in
Haiti. The usage seems to have documented at wiki
but seems like there isn't any explicit clauses about allowing to OSM on
the linked mailinglist posts, and the Google page says "Use restricted to
non-commercial use in or related to Haitian relief efforts." Also, as that
was before the CC BY-SA and ODbL switch in 2012, I and other users have
expressed some doubts about whether we are still having permission to use
that source on OSM. I personally haven't contacted Mikel yet, or the other
people involved in the discussion and approved the usage on OSM.
