[talk-ph] OSM's new license process

Hi Mike,

I'm pretty sure that almost all Filipino contributors would be amenable to
adopting the new license. Many just want to create maps and don't really
care about the license (as long as they can use it themselves); some even
contribute to Google Map Maker which has definitely a vastly different
license. As for the rest, the share-alike provision is the really important

Personally, I'm waiting on the issue regarding whether the share-alike
provision triggers for internal interim databases. I prefer that internal
interim databases used to create Produced Works be also released under the
ODbL, but I won't object if the community says that it's ok if these remain
internal and unreleased. As for whether Produced Works should be share-alike
also, I very much prefer that these only require attribution to the Database
only. I very much agree that it's the data that matters, not the end
