  Hello Robin,

  Thanks for poiting this out. Any thought on what license then should
OpenCellID use? I would be happy if somebody with a good background on this
would provide us a suggesiton on the license or even the wording to be used
with OpenCellID.

  And sebastian, as I stated yesterday, congrat for the idea, I am looking
forward for the integration between this effort and OpenCellID.
