'Ts a pretty nice triplet of tables here, everybody! Let's keep them updated. Stevea (talk) 02:11, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Comments column

Was originally meant for licence compatibility when it was on the original page. Now it has datasets mixed in with it and generic terms describing licences that don't help Canadian mappers through the minefield that is Canadian open data licensing--Scruss (talk) 22:17, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

So maybe need to add a new column as to if the license is approved or not?

If I may suggest (and it may sound gimmicky but it's easy, works and is a convention): "wrap" the contents of status in the License column with a red/yellow/green color-code. The syntax to do so with yes, partial or no is pretty easy to use and found in other places in this table. (Also, please "sign" entries here with four tildes and our wiki markup language will auto-sign). Stevea (talk) 22:41, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

I've completed the basics of my own suggestion: now the top table blends license status with a red/yellow/green color-code as to whether or not Contributors#Canadian_Municipalities demonstrates ODbL compatibility with this license has been found (by LWG, one presumes).
