[talk-au] Use of mapconnect data in OSM

Can someone in the know talk with me about mapconnect?

The licensing statement at 
and the human readable version seem to me to indicate that its use is OK 
provided you give appropriate credit and show a link to the license.

I was looking for a way to import National Park Boundaries into OSM.  
The data is there but, lets face it the licensing issues are so complex 
that I do not know if we are allowed.

I have put a boundary around John Forrest National Park, just east of 
Midland WA, ex an shp file from mapconnect.  Easily revertible.

I would appreciate a response to the licensing issue and if the boundary 
definition is OK.
