Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I think that the ODbL is a big step forward for OpenStreetMap, and I'd like to move to it as soon as possible. I heard that it's possible to sign up to them voluntarily, and allow all my contributions to be made available under ODbL, when it's time to move. How can I do that?

Just pop along to http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/terms and have a read of the terms, and if you're happy to accept them then click the big "Accept" button at the bottom.

If you like you can also check the box to say that you'd like your edits to be considered as public domain.
