   The license I'd like should:

       - be free of charge, money for distribution and handling is okay
       - have freedom to modify and change and combine with other data
       - keep original sources of data & copyright notices in all distributions
       - nature and type of modifications/additions must be noted and described
       - be as close to natural language/common sense as possible (a user 
	 shouldn't have to ask debian-legal what it means! ;-)
       - not be Yet Another License if at all possible

Almost all Open Source licenses fit the above.  I'd suggest the X
Consortium license:
