Will @MapBox allow imagery tracing for OSM with their new satellite tiles? http://mapbox.com/blog/digital-globe-partnership/

You should post this question on: https://help.openstreetmap.org/

That would be exceedingly daft - if he wants to ask MapBox a question he should ask MapBox, not a collection of random OSM users.

@TomH

I think you may be a little confused. "√úser Diaries" is where random OSM contributors post useful information and comments (it can also be useless and sometimes it is spam i.e. rubbish).

maning is asking a legitimate question.

On https://help.openstreetmap.org/ the OSM Gurus such as Frederick Ramm and SomeoneElse give much needed advice and cannot be considered to be random users.

maning's question may have been put already to this set of gurus and they may know the answer already.

Actually I've already asked that question to the mapbox staff. They said they are focusing on getting their service up and running at the moment but they "look forward to involving the openstreetmap community"
