This was hidden in a page labelled "Website changes coming soon" on
the Australian Bureau of Statistics website, but I figured it's worth
bringing to the attention of the relevant parties. ABS statistics on
its web site have been free-as-in-beer for a while now, but apparently
as an attempt to capture the attention of people searching for
free-as-in-speech information, "The ABS is poised to introduce
Creative Commons licensing for the majority of its web content." From
about two weeks from now, apparently almost everything on the ABS web
site will be under a CC-BY-2.5 Australia license.
