Was at ceBIT this week and Helen Owens, the head of the Public Data Branch
within the PM&C portfolio presented on the planned, more "open",  release
of the remaining 9 themes within the Foundation Spatial Data Framework
(FSDF).

Earlier this year the National Addresses and Administrative boundaries
(G-NAF)) [1] were released with some unresolved CC-BY4.0 Use Restrictions
still outstanding (I'll pick that thread up in a separate email).  The
ANZLIC agency [2] will be releasing these further datasets over the coming
months/years moving forward with separate upstream licences likely
restricting osm usage somewhat.

Just a heads up though that these are being prepared under a single
"public, not open, data" branch of government so hopefully some
applications across themes may be applied into osm with appropriate checks
and balances etc.
