Hi all,

I can say that we are going to update the methodology for producing the
LLOD cloud soon and we will look into the issue of non-open resources. I
think it is a good idea to include some non-open resources as they may be
targets of linking from open resources, however we should not include
non-open resources that are not linked to/from open resources. The option
of graying-out non-open resources or otherwise clearly indicating that they
are not open is a necessary step.
