Good news is that the government is pushing an Open Data Policy at the
federal level (I work at that team). And we have a CC-BY compatible license
in the official data portal (see datos.gob.mx/libreusomx), which AFAIK is
somewhat compatible with ODBL - an attribution-only kind of license. This
In the meantime I'm collecting COD/FODs datasets for HDX and datos.gob.mx,
Do you think COD/FOD is a good framework to start?
