Hello Michel,

Thanks for launching this discussion! I hope we can help you

I just wanted to point out that licensing, as such, cannot resolve
fear of the unknown. Choosing a license based on fears and
unverified assumptions does not seem like a good basis to start
opening up government data.

So I think it's a good idea to be able to make a distinction and
to drive the discussions where we can reach results. I haven't got
much experience with government's databases and their opening up,
but other organisations do. Have you got in touch?

Good luck!
