Here is a quick report from the License Working Group as we have been
rather quiet.

Since the proposal we made to the OSMF board in August and at SOTM
2009, we have been working on a number of small issues raised but now
getting on track to make our final formal license change proposal to
OSMF members.

- We now have a simple human-readable summary of the ODbL initiated by
us and hosted at http://www.opendatacommons.org/licenses/odbl/summary/

- A very much re-worked Contributor Terms is now virtually complete
and you can see a snapshot at
http://docs.google.com/View?id=dd9g3qjp_1kqzg8dhr. Any comments or
discussion welcome.

- We believe we are now on the final countdown to presenting a formal
proposal to OSMF members.  This will be based on a slight re-work of
this document presented to the Sept 15th board meeting:

- While OSMF members study the proposal, we are also circulating it to
a number of legal luminaries in the Open Intellectional Property
community as a courtesy and for any comments they might makes,
especially as to interaction with other projects that are or make use
of open creative works and open software.

- The OSMF board will meet next Oct 13th. This will be the first
opportunity to consider when a member vote should occur.
