Some days ago, the Science Commons initiative published this first
version of their memo (think of this like a sort of RFC) named "Protocol
for Implementing Open Access Data". It's not a document describing a
technical internet standard, but rather gives the minimum requirements
for releasing and distributing data and databases as Open Access, as
defined by the Open Knowledge Definition and the Budapest Declaration on
Open Access.

It shouldn't be too hard to adapt this document to fit the need of
archaeologists who are interested in sharing their data - a recurrent
issue at least in some countries, where the legal status of
archaeological data is quite unclear.
