I am confused about the state of the license issue still.

I haven't seen anything from LWG saying resolving the questions or saying 
that the ODL-Ottawa is compatible with OSM (What i called situation 1 in my 
email last week).

I don't really understand what these issues are but others have expressd 
concern and I think that needs to be sorted out.

The email from Robert Giggey of Jan 24 5:27pm linked to on the wiki page 
doesn't seem like a permission email for what I called situation 3.

I don't see him saying something along the lines of

"On Behalf of the city of Ottawa I hearby accept the OSM contributor terms, 
and give explicit permission for this data set to be imported into OSM"
