I think I'd need to see what the data is rather than put it in
For example, let's say we're going to lose lots of one way streets (that
I mapped originally) in my area because user X went round changing them
from 'yes' to 'true' and then decided they didn't agree with the license
(or more likely weren't contactable any more), then I could in principle
recreate these from my original data. Not that I want to spend time
doing this, but if I had to I could.
But in any case, I'd say 10% is too high. Even if it's 0.1% but it's all
in my area because there's a particular individual working here blocking
it, it's WAY too high and would destroy over two years of my work.
Personally, if we lose anything that isn't easily remapped (i.e. almost
zero work), I'd rather stick with the old license.
Trouble is, I can't vote no once I've voted yes, but if I vote no
initially, I'll be undermining everyone else.
