[OSM-talk] Attribution guideline status update

As we've mentioned multiple times over the last months, the LWG decided
last year to consolidate all attribution guidance in to one document and
address some of the use cases that have become common over the last 7
years that previously had none. Particularly in the light of the
parallel discussions about attribution on larger social media platforms
we need to make up our minds what we actually want, and define concrete
minimum requirements for acceptable attribution. To not do this just
provides the excuse of pointing to the cacophony of voices all saying
something different. 

We've been working on and off on the document for a while, and are now
largely finished. Going forward we intend to wikify the document and
make it available for public comment together with a BoF session at SotM
next month (which probably means that we'll have to appropriate a coffee
break). You can have a glimpse at the text here

the few things that are not nailed down belong to those that we would
appreciate feedback on.

Simon

PS: the number of coffee breaks permitting we might want to appropriate
another one for the discussion of a tile licence change.
