Task Planned start date- Expected end date Other details
Import 7-Eleven Store Location Data November 2012 to May 2013 (Discontinued, see "Other details") Based on this page, the data showing Gulp sales for a certain promotion is (presumably) licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Philippines license. Only the location data will be uploaded (assuming that the said data can be imported).

NOTICE: Import of data will not push through due to lack of location data (specifically addresses or a lat/lon field). Instead, it will be used to check/verify information for a certain 7-Eleven branch.
