[OSM-talk] [Osmf-talk] Attribution guideline status update

Nobody is even remotely suggesting that use OpenStreetMap data can be
used without attribution (claims that that is the case lead me to
believe that some haven't actually read the document in question).

The discussion is solely about the practicalities  of where to put the
attribution when multiple sources have been used in a map rendering and
OSM is not the source of the majority of the data presented.
