Hi,

Congratulations. It looks like an interesting addition to the data cloud.

I have read on your web site that you are currently working on a dump. 
When it will be finished, if you publish it along with a semantic 
sitemap [1] and submit the sitemap.xml here [2], we'll be happy to 
process it and index the data into Sindice.
