Have a map of Michigan with as more routing as possible. For this I have finished creating relations for Interstate, US and state highways and ensure that they are continuous.

Duplicate highway points are solved. I am now trying to fix Interstate and other freeway cross-overs.

I also try to map as many parks and trails as possible.

Why I declined the new contributor terms

I did not agree to the CT because "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

There is no evidence that the current license is broken (as far as I know nobody "stole" OSM data claiming that they did so because the license was inapplicable) but the license change will break OSM with the whole data removal process.

I understand the reasoning behind the license change but in my opinion the certain loss is not worth the potential gain especially now that CC seems willing to address those issues in a future version of their license.
