I've been working on the main roads in south of England over the past 
few weeks. I deliberately avoided parts of Hampshire as I'd heard Andy 
Street was still considering and if possible I'd prefer people accepted 
than we remap.

However, with just two weeks left (possibly less if this continuous 
rebuild idea is going ahead and a fully ODBL map is due on 1 April) then 
I think the time has come to remap what we can.

We've been at the licence change for a long time and I'm not sure how 
something will come up in the next few days that will make a difference 
in this case, unless somebody has more info they can share on this.
