Dear all,

Frida is the project that developed the first fully intentionally developed
streetmap dataset of Germany (City of Osnabrück).
It was licensed unter GNU GPL in the absence of a really
suitable license.

Meanwhile the OpenStreetMap (OSM) project was founded and developed into a
real success story. Osnabrück was missing entirely and so the natural decision
was made to get the Frida dataset into OSM.

Technically all is prepared and only needs to be performed finally.
In fact I am not sure whether this needs a final formal decision from OSM.
However, Intevation now relicenses Frida dataset under Creative Commons 
Attribution-ShareAlike 2.0 license. This is the license OSM applies for the

All the best
