Hi, and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
The only Gent traces I took were as I flew through on a train. When I added the station, I noticed that there were other traces, so rendered the map. I'm not sure who made the other traces, but your best bet is to ask on the talk page for WikiProject_Belgium to see if they know. --Gagravarr 16:39, 15 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, i've indeed edited the gent page, put i rather see a dark future for me in this project, beceause i'm not willing to buy (or even lend) a gps. But there is a lot of data to tag (but no info about it, yet). But yeh we will see.
On the other hand i see a very bright future for the mapping of Belgium. You are really doing a great jop in Leuven. And beceause people see these fruits of labour they also wanna help! (sorry for my bad english, but i'm trying :) )
