All you need is a basic understanding of the Australian system of

decisions about the licensing of a State owned dataset. But to confirm
someone could contact DNRM and ask the question.

That's putting it politely. There is a rather toxic stratum of
correspondence on talk-au around the period of the license change.
As I said earlier this is a can of worm and I have been deliberately
leaving the Contributors page alone and just keeping an eye on what
people are importing into OSM.
