                                Want     Want  Opinion Want Want
   Require BY on Database           2     12      16    44   66
   Require SA on Database          12     19      23    49   37
   Require BY on Produced Works     7     14      28    56   35
   Require SA on Produced Works    37     30      45    17   11
   Require NC                     110     18       7     2    3

where NC = Non-commercial use only, BY = Attribution and SA = 

finding the median value gives a better "overall" score than looking at 
those raw numbers.

   Require BY on Database:       Want
   Require SA on Database:       Want
   Require BY on Produced Works: Want
   Require SA on Produced Works: No opinion
   Require NC:                   Strongly Don't Want

or if we count those wanting or not wanting, regardless of strength:

                                 Wanting Wanting
   Require BY on Database:         14      110

   Require BY on Produced Works:   21       91
   Require SA on Produced Works:   67       28
   Require NC:                    128        5

you would like to check that your vote has been tallied, please look for 
your random token string in the "nonce" column and, if there is a 
problem, contact me or the membership secretary 
(membership at osmfoundation.org) and we'll try to deal with it.

If you have found an error in any of the calculations above, please let 
me know as soon as possible.

pending and were paid during the course of the voting period.
