There are a bunch of wiki pages of varying quality and accuracy that  
relate to the licence here:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Open_Data_Licence

Sure, there are also a bunch of unanswered questions and as I am 'on  
the outside' as well I don't have the answers to them and actually I  
think the people on the inside are still working on some of them. I  
suggest that we capture the questions on the 'open issues' wiki page

Peter
