Hi Sebastien,

Thank-you very much for sending through the proposal. My understanding
is that you aren't so much building a quiz builder as an open
*database* of questions (perhaps in some structured format?). Is that

Also, in terms of licensing I assume you would be *openly* licensing
the material i.e. using an Open Definition conformant license. One
reason for asking is the current site uses a non-commercial license
which isn't, in fact, Open Definition conformant (note that not all CC
licenses are open and CC licenses do not in fact form a commons - see
[1] for more).
