Would the ability to differentially mark changesets as "for promotion
to ODbL" and "not for promotion (with a helpful detail)" address this
The intent is to allow those with concerns about some of their data to
mark it, and accept the terms for the data they are confident in.
One imagined implementation would provide a checkbox and textfield for
each changeset. The user then checks and adds comments as required.
If this addresses your concern in this case, please let me know. I'll
be happy to summarize the replies during the LWG call in a little over
24 hours. A positive response would be lovely.
