What is on-topic?

We've had various comments to close questions that some members of the community felt weren't on-topic. I don't think that we can rely on classifical categorization, so it might be worth trying to tease out where the boundaries might be:

  • is free but not open data acceptable?
  • how 'open' does the data have to be?
  • do tools have to be 'open' as well as the data?
  • where do we draw the line between using the data vs. programming (and thus on StackOverflow)?

We had something similar on dba.SE, due to the strange origins of that site.
