Minutes by: Michael
1. Adoption of Minutes of last meetings
The LWG last met November 1st.
2. MATTERS ARISING (open action items from previous meetings)
3. Finalise today's agenda
4. .yu emailing
Translations of English-language email draft requested.
5. Deceased contributors
Our understanding of initial response from legal counsel: We could do it with permission from the bereaved but varies very much from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, right down to state level. Probably not worth pursuing except on a case by case basis where individuals who know the bereaved and can approach them with tact and sensitivity.
6. From OSMF Board Meeting
Board would like to set 1st April 2012 for cutting over to ODbL latest.
LWG feels that with current status this is a practical goal for the community to work towards and resolves to meet this target (phase 5 in our implementation plan http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Open_Database_License/Implementation_Plan#PHASE_5_aka_Done_-_License_Cut-over_from_CC-BY-SA_to_ODbL_.28date_to_be_decided.2C_depends_on_the_technical_work.29
Richard will draft sub-phases to get us there. The LWG is of the opinion that the immediate step, in addition to a second mass mailing to older contributors who have neither accepted nor declined the new terms, is to formally encourage local remapping where there are ways and nodes touched by folks who have not accepted the new terms. LWG will discuss on legal-talk before a formal announcement.
