Hi,

    I would like to know what should be done when including some dataset 
in scipy ? For example, during the development of my project pymachine, 
I would like to include some famous data like iris/old faithful data, 
etc... for demo of classic machine learning algorithms. R has some 
intereseting data, but is licensed under the GPL, and I am not quite 
sure what the status of the data are wrt the license ? Does GPL also 
cover raw data ?

    cheers,

    David
