Imports

Discussion on recent shutdown and revert of rjhale's building footprint import.

  • The shutdown of the import felt drastic for the importers,
  • How can we make the interaction between DWG more curteous?
  • Response compounded by scarce resources
  • http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Import just sucks, the red box doesn't actually say what matters
  • Next action: draft improved first Import wiki page and a paragraph to it on OSM.us
  • Martijn does blog post? Alex could jump on this to.
