User account responsible for coordinating monitoring of deviation from source for verification, errors, etc. Possibly could be primarily done via software or script, but someone should still be a point of contact and making sure any automated alerts are being monitored. Responsibility shifts from Import (coordinating the import) to maintainer (making sure the data stays fresh and current). Anyone can claim this role, but should be responsive to messages via change-sets, OSM lists, and/or direct messages.
Fields under consideration
- Data Type - field that can indicate what types of data this source can provide or maybe new columns for each breakdown which then would require import per data type or multiple listing of the source. Needs discussion for handling.
- Source QA Tool or Workflow - link to page describing the datasource workflow and link(s) to open access tools supporting comparing and/or monitoring the data variance between OSM and the source data.
- Data Update Frequency - if known the period in which data is updated and should be reviewed
