PD declaration non binding? [1], Emailed LWG on 18 Aug.

PD option is an opinion not a full legal declaration. But it allows the project to know how people feel. Frederik Ramm asked for the option and he has defended it. -- Firefishy 17:53, 2 September 2010 (BST)

OSMF's attitude to hosting forks, Emailed Mike 11 Aug, 18 Aug, [2], Forking

I can't speak for the OSMF Board, but I don't see why OSMF should be hosting fork(s). As the hardward guy and part of the sysadmin team I have no desire in assisting. OSM is enough for me thanks. --Firefishy 17:41, 2 September 2010 (BST)

Can produced works be released as PD? [3] [4], Emailed LWG on 18 Aug. [5]

I believe they require attribution. -- Firefishy 17:41, 2 September 2010 (BST)

Impact of ODbL and CTs on GPS tracks

GPS Points from the database will be licensed under ODbL. GPX files really don't need to be resolved now. -- Firefishy 17:41, 2 September 2010 (BST)

ODbL and the duration of IP protection

No consensus has been reached. This can be resolved at a later stage. -- Firefishy 17:41, 2 September 2010 (BST)

Do we have consensus? [6] [7] The Process

Yes for the process so far. -- Firefishy 17:41, 2 September 2010 (BST)

Semi-addressed: Questions to LWG on ODbL

Answered. But the goal posts seem to be shifting. -- Firefishy 17:41, 2 September 2010 (BST)
