The sysadmin team completed the data base migration to the new DB server on schedule during the the morning of 04 April 2012. The API is now back to normal, Read – Write operation. Now the final steps of the license upgrade will proceed as outlined in the March – April service schedule announcement
Other items of possible interest as the license upgrade process proceeds:
osm.org map tile generation will recommence within the next few hours.
Replication diffs during the license upgrade period have started after community requests. These cc-by-sa data replication diffs are found in the
redaction-period directory on planet. planet.openstreetmap.org/redaction-period. These diffs will only serve the period up until the switch to the new license. Mappers have requested these diffs for the redaction period. General consumers of OSM data may choose to consume these diffs or not at their discretion.
ODbL diffs will be located in another directory to be announced in future.
During the redaction period it is recommended that editors save their work early and often to reduce the chances of, and the complexity of conflicts with the back ground redaction process.
