More progress. Andy feels that all the bits are there now to run an actual redaction.  He has started testing against a working - but not live -  instance of the OSM database and is fixing some problems.

5. Hall of Shame

  • Azzugia update from Henk

Azzugia have recognised that they are not attributing us properly. They have made a fix to their application and shown Henk a screenshot. However, the updated application still has to be released to app stores.
