Before Scruss comes out and says it:
1. Wiki documentation
2. You need to get LWG to approve license as it's not a standard license.
Explicit permission can certainly help our case.

After license is approved we could move on to approval of data quality,
then submit it for revue on import list(p.s. if it's crappy data they are
going to tell you about how it's crappy)

After all that(maybe 1-2 years later) can we move on to the serving of data
via a tasking manager and start the import
