Import process, people, progress

I plan to offer josm osm-files country by country. So, individuals from a country/interested in a country import can do best. Other opinions? --Okilimu 15:51, 1 June 2011 (BST)

open issue: how to import several objects

Additionally to the main fuel station, the file content could be also used to import

Object (File Field, Value) Import?
"Services" = "Shop" shop=kiosk
"Services" = "Snack Corner"  ?
"Services" = "Snack Corner"  ?
"Services" = "Austrian Motorway Vignette"  ?
"Services" = "Automatic car wash" shop=car_wash
"Services" = "Toilette for disable people" amenity=toilet


I'm not sure, if i should accumulate amenity with all possible values or, instead, add extra objects for the additional amenity, with an offset of a few meters around the fuel station object. --Okilimu 15:51, 1 June 2011 (BST)
