Hi all,

I'm analyzing the OSM license change [0] and the effects it will have
on data interchange between Wikipedia and OSM. At [1] they say that
there should be no change for maps, but I'm not clarified on how (and
if) will I be able to import batches of OSM data in Wikipedia after
the license change (for instance add the postal codes of all the
villages in a country to an Infobox template). Can someone clarify
this and the reverse case (import data from Wikipedia in OSM) please?
