[okfn-be] Flemish datasets that should be Open Data

Hi all,

Noël Van Herreweghe of Corvé/Bestuurzaken Flemish government published a 
list of datasets that should be open data according "decreet 
openbaarheid van bestuur / decreet hergebruik van overheidsinformatie" 
and the new policy at the Flemish Government that databases should be 
open by default, not by exception.

If you cannot access a certain dataset in this list:
you should send an email to the responsible organisation. If the 
organisation declines you the access to this we can start a 
"beroepsprocedure". In all other cases we will have a bunch of new open 
data :)

I already did this for Codex Vlaanderen. They first reacted a bit slow 
and asked me question about how I wanted the data. When I got it, I've 
put it on Github. Right now they are moving towards a more professional 
way of opening up their data. All because just one question.

Conclusion: we need your help! Send a couple of emails, open Flanders :)

Kind regards,
