I am pleased that PlugShare easily accepts data contributions, but does 
it meet your own criteria listed an hour ago?...

I've read through the PlugShare "Terms of Use Agreement", and it seems 
very much opposed to the "open" philosophy espoused by OVMS (and OCM).

Mind you, I have absolutely no objection to anyone developing-in an OVMS 
feature to contribute information to PlugShare and other databases 
besides OCM.  I merely mean to point out and seek clarification for the 
apparent conflict in your positions.
