Yahoo Maps and its end X effects on OSM

Sometime ago I read that Yahoo let OSM use some of their data. But today it announced a shut down by the end of month.

Could there be an effort to use the most of that information while it exists? Or, maybe, cache/save it somehow for future uses here. Or something else, I’m not sure what to think about this notice.

Will this happening having any consequences on OSM? Does it need any special handling?


OpenStreetMap editors have not facilitated tracing from Yahoo! imagery for some time. It’s pretty much irrelevant.
