Hi, veri good news!
About license, can by changed to CC0 as Wikidata?

It very important in structured data and data-interchange to use CC0... 
We are using Wikidata with government applications because is CC0: we 
can copy/paste wikidata information to a table and publish the table 
with the text of an official act (law).. The text of the official act  
MUST be CC0.
