Agenda & Minutes
Present: Dermot McNally, Simon Poole, Oliver Kühn, Richard Weait, Michael Collinson, Grant Slater
Minutes by: Michael
1. Adoption of Minutes of last meetings
The LWG last met February 21st for a long-form meeting.
2. MATTERS ARISING (open action items from previous meetings)
3. Finalise today's agenda
4. Database contact and re-map
We are now down by roughly 40'000 highways compared to the start and from a contributor point of view around 20% of the contacted mappers have reacted and accepted.
We discussed Haiti and if there was anything more specific we could do. Mikel Maron, as a board member, is aware and championing,
5. Technical Rebuild
Historical planet dump can be done after the change-over from an SQL dump that willl be made … solved possible timing issues.
- Data lingering. Do we need to keep things in the db? Should stuff be expunged completely or kept in the db but hidden from distribution under ODbL
Old data is not thrown out, it is available in one form or another, e.g. CC-BY-SA planet dumps. We feel that for the current db, technical considerations should take precedence.
The only requirement that the LWG has is that any lingering data should not be accessible under normal publishing conditions … it is the publishing that is important.
6. OSM Poland
7. OSM Czech Republic
Dermot will take this on.
- Attribution after the license change
Richard Fairhurst has made a first draft of this (see: 3a. I would like to use OpenStreetMap maps. How should I credit you?) and also a post-license-change License FAQ:
Mike - advertise on legal talk for comments when Richard F has done further drafting.
