Subject Re: Use of third party text content in source release
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2016 00:47:47 GMT
FWIW: when Bigtop found itself in a similar situation with Movielens we ended
up removing it and going through the extra mechanics of wget'ing before
the build/testrun.

In general, I find tracking licensing of data sets even tougher than code.

Thanks,
Roman.
