Growing agreement & relicensing OSM -Update-

by Pascal Neis - Published: March 12th, 2011

My last blog post about the growing agreement to the new CTs is now nearly three months ago. Time for a short update: During the aforementioned time frame, about 32 contributors accepted the new CTs every day. Overall this means that since October 21 2010 there are about 43 contributors each day who accepted the new CTs. I updated my diagram with the latest numbers:

In December I conducted an analysis about the “Change of OSM object numbers through relicensing”. This time I only declared the last modifier of an OSM object (node/way/relation) as the owner of the object! The last and the new results can be seen in the following diagrams:

In my OSM-user-database of March 9th, 2011 a total of 120456* members are the “owners” of the following OSM objects (* Notice: Not every member of the OSM project (>350000 members) has contributed!):

  • Number of nodes: 1007604532
  • Number of ways: 85365727
  • Number of relations: 899145

As of March 9th, 2011, 8124 Users have accepted the new license. 35678 new OSM members (uid >= 286582) have accept the new contributor terms automatically. I created the following numbers of OSM objects, which will be available for relicensing (if you assume that the last modifier is the owner of the object):

  • Number of nodes: 801700665 (79,56%) (as of Dec. 15th, 2010 it was 66,52%)
  • Number of ways: 66236798 (77,59%) (as of Dec. 15th, 2010 it was 61,68%)
  • Number of relations: 716130 (79,65%) (as of Dec. 15th, 2010 it was 62,14%)

Are you still interested in any analysis regarding this topic?

thx @ Dennis
