Minutes by: Michael
1. Adoption of Minutes of last meetings
The LWG last met August 16th.
2. MATTERS ARISING (open action items from previous meetings)
3. Finalise today's agenda
4. Ed Avis research
Had informal results from two firms (UK and US) that he contacted. Summarised to legal-talk list. Some questions generated have been forwarded. He invited LWG to forward to him any questions arising that we might like to ask.
Ed left the call at 20:13
5. SOTM 2011 Feedback?
Overall tone was why don't we just get on with it and finish it ... not opposition and feeling we were going to fast. Henk added that this was different to OSM Vienna ... these were chiefly concerned with perceived lack of communication and worries about the potential of large amounts of data being deleted.
6. http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright and friends
Mike - Send revised text Grant
7. ODbL implementation
The number of older contributors accepting the new terms is still rising and now at 44,083 ... roughly 3,000 in five weeks. The total number of explicit declines is level at 353.
Pass to Communication WG via Management Meeting. Mike.
Richard to start drafting. We need to pay much greater attention to translation into other languages in the email itself.
8. Database re-build
8. Hall of Shame
These are *alleged* cases of violation of OSM copyright.
Lance Burger drafted suitable wording to cover issued raised by Mike in addition to his own suggestions and sent the draft. There have been no objections so far and only one more approval may be needed.
Update: There are 28 total. We can guess new email address but Tom Hughes advises that privacy issue prevents us from giving personal data of any kind to potentially the wrong person ... Richard to draft a careful email with that in mind.
Tuesday Oct 4th 11am PST / 14:00 EST / 18:00 UTC / 19:00 BST(UK) / 20:00 CEST AND/OR a date/time to suit Australian time zone.
