There is still a lot of remapping to be done, especially in Los Angeles area
where there are several mappers whom have not accepted the new license.
Take a look at the Los Angeles area on OSM inspector
ified,wtfe_point_created,wtfe_line_created_cp,wtfe_line_created).  Are you
guys really willing to let this much data go down the drain?  There is also
a similar issue in other cities and countries, including London, Germany,
and especially Poland.  What is going to be done about all this data?  And
why didn't the OSMF step in and help, since they were the ones forcing this
upon us?

Hi all,

An (overdue!) progress update for you.

As you will have read on this list, the test cases are essentially done. 
Of the 296 tests, only two (fairly minor ones) are failing. This is
excellent news: it means the logic for the changeover is now complete. 
Huge thanks to everyone who's contributed to this.

Given people's constraints on time and the community's (understandable)
desire for the redaction to get underway asap, at our OSMF board meeting on
Monday, we resolved to employ a developer to work on applying this logic to
the OSM database. The remaining steps are essentially: to identify and
complete any missing code, including failing tests that absolutely need to
be resolved before moving on, and any 'bridging' code to the API; to make
sure that this will run successfully against an OSM database; and then to
run it against the production database.

I'm really pleased to report that Andy Allan, who most of you will of course
know, has agreed to take on this work and that he started on it today.

Dermot and I will be working as the "interface" between Andy and OSMF and,
of course, the community. If you have any questions, suggestions, other
things that end in -estions, do of course throw them here.
