Initial release meaning the announcement?

well, you probably don't need PR help, though happy to send the note to boingboing if you have the data available and don't feel like doing the press release.

i meant if you want me hosting the data (with you getting credit for cracking it) or simply mirroring whatever it is you put out ... just offering to belly up to the bar and take partial responsibility for having this stuff on-line if that serves useful.

what is it you are doing to de-copyright the data, extract the facts, or whatever it is we're doing to distinguish the public domain data from the thin veneer of copyright they tried to paint on the disc? Reorganize the tables and change the file structure?
