One of the devs, Stefan Urbanek, on this new data catalog for Slovakia
called Datanest announced that it's officially "gone live" today:
http://datanest.fair-play.sk/

Built on a general data catalog codebase called Datacamp:
http://github.com/Stiivi/datacamp

Datanest is an unofficial data catalog, run by an NGO called Fair Play
Alliance.  It looks like it's got a lot of data, but two major
problems I see with it are:

* The Copyright and Terms pages are lorem impsum's still, and those
are important
* No bulk data access. You have to register to gain access to an API,
and then you have API access only, not bulk.

It's a good start, though it looks like they launched a bit early, and
the NGO in charge is exerting heavier control than I'd like to see.
