Thanks Michael. Actually seeing a full copy of an email including the OKing
the use of gov.au data is what I was waiting for also. Getting an explicit
email approving the use is going above and beyond for me and much
appreciated. 

 

I haven't been following OSM as much as I did now my uses for it have
dropped. So please forgive me if the following question has been answered or
has become inflammatory. Does the gov.au Ok also cover the ABS data?

As the ABS data is the only thing left stopping me accepting the new terms.

 

Thanks

Mark

Can you please publish the verbatim correspondence that you have had with

nuances that you have overlooked.

The statement on the wiki is not a statement from data.gov.au and counts for
nothing unless you have a document from your man at data.gov.au that
references it and says yes that's ok.  Do you have such a document?


Gosh, this is getting kakfaesque. Hope this puts this it to bed:
