"installing a Junta with the person mainly responsible for the current state of affairs in charge, not."

What do you exactly mean by "the current state of affairs"? Is that the financial risk exposure by OSMF for SOTM? No insurance for a hosting location catching fire?

@ Flo as one of the persons behind the Dutch address and building import I'm very interested in some of the things you're writing.

  1. "Mistakes have been made while importing" Could you be more specific on the address and building import?

  2. "due to the visually complete data the NL community has failed to attract a lot of mappers" a. What mapper% is normal for a country? b. How is the Netherlands doing compared to this measure? c. Could you be more specific on the nature of the relationship between visually complete data and % of mappers?

@ Simon "In any case as I pointed out, data doesn't have to be -in- OSM to be usable with our tools and apps" Before the import of addresses and buildings I posted a question on the @import list how to get the Netherlands address database directly into a Geofabrik extract. Since I got now answer, I presumed this was not possible. Is it, one year later, already possible to get an address database directly into a Geofabrik extract?

Cheers, Johan
