Maxmind announced - and now with the new year it is effective - that
they had to change the license and the ways how they have to distribute
the databases, because of some new california law, see [0].

I have got access to the new sources and the license file states:

"Use of this MaxMind product is governed by MaxMind's GeoLite2 End User
License Agreement, which can be viewed at
This database incorporates GeoNames [https://www.geonames.org]
geographical data, which is made available under the Creative Commons

So before I may have to raise this topic to debian-devel@ I would like
to hear your thoughts about this license [1] and what is now possible
for Debian and what not, e.g. not main, but non-free, filtering, I have
got no idea..
