[talk-au] Re-entering data to avoid licensing failure

Hullo everyone,

I keep well out of the whole legal/political side of OSM usually, but 
I'd just like to ask if I should be doing anything in particular whilst 
editing these days, before the licence change?  I mean, people keep 
talking about deleting and recreating data that's been added by 
decliners, and it rather sounds like a fair bit of work!  If I just 
carry on as usual, am I making more work for everyone later, or is it 
going to be okay?  I don't particularly fancy having piles of my 
contributions removed because they're building on decliners' data!


PS: Please say "yeah it'll all be fine"!  ;-)
