As mentioned earlier, LWG and OSMF chose not to participate directly with
the law clinic and the students. Members of the LWG (Alyssa) and OSMF
(Mikel, Martijn) are involved in the process that OpenStreetMap US is
kicking off. LWG and OSMF have repeatedly been invited to participate. If
other members are not interested in this process, that's OK.

We never claimed that results would be legally binding or "official". As
has been mentioned several times, the goal of this is to get the students
acquainted with our project, the strong, supportive community, and
hopefully get them to continue working with the community in the future.
