Norbert,

1. Yes, it would be fair to say that ODbL is much closer to LGPL than
it is to GPL. The ODbL does not require Share-Alike merely on
combining two datasets, but only if you modify the data that's in OSM
in addition to adding your own.

2. Using GPG is good. Using GPG without MIME encapsulation is pretty
bad. http://www.phildev.net/pgp/pgp_clear_vs_mime.html#pgpmime
