Subject [VOTE] [IP clearance] OpenDDR resources file donation to DeviceMap podling
Date Fri, 28 Sep 2012 15:21:26 GMT

IP clearance usually works by lazy consensus, but in this case I'd
like an explicit vote, as the donation described at [0] includes data
that when hosted on Github has caused a DMCA takedown request [1] to
which OpenDDR responded [2].

I guess from our point of view the decision is whether the donation of
that data can be considered voluntary, as the ownership of the
original data is somewhat unclear. The header of the original data
file [2] states that "the information listed here has been collected
by many different people from many different countries", but in [1] a
copyright on that data is asserted.

The code parts of the OpenDDR donation are not affected, so I'd like
Incubator PMC members to vote as follows:

[ ] +1, accept the OpenDDR donation including the data
[ ] -1, do not accept the (but the
other parts are ok)

IMO the alternative, if we don't accept the resources part of the
donation, is to ask OpenDDR to come up with a resources file that
contains only their own original work.

The vote is open for at least 72 hours (will leave it open a bit more
due to TGIF).
