Thanks, though I'd already seen that. (The promptness of the LWG's
minutes is great by the way :) )

However, while the details in those minutes do provide some useful
insight into what is still to be done, they don't really provide any
indication of time scales. There's also no mention of the progress (or
lack thereof) in the following week's LWG minutes, so one doesn't get
any sense of how things are progressing. The LWG minutes also don't
explain whether OSMF is actually planning to make the license change
as soon as those issues are resolved or whether there are also other
things that need to be done first.

In the run-up to the redaction process, we had weekly updates posted
to the rebuild mailing list from the Communication Working Group.
Perhaps something similar could be continued now. Or maybe we could
have another official post on http://blog.osmfoundation.org/ to
provide an update as to where things currently stand...
