It wouldn't hurt to create such a tool at any time, but the results
are not meaningful until after (as I understand it) the general notice
goes out to users who have neither accepted or rejected the terms.
There are a many users who have contributed in the past but have become
inactive and know nothing about OSM license term changes.
A final appreciation will be shown to past contributors who have
since died or abandoned their OSM email account; their contribution will
be removed. I understand why, but that's the way it is.
