Jo — interesting, I wasn’t aware (or had forgotten..) that there was another Python Overpass interface. It seems we have
https://github.com/DinoTools/python-overpy <https://github.com/DinoTools/python-overpy> and the one I maintain https://github.com/mvexel/overpass-api-python-wrapper <https://github.com/mvexel/overpass-api-python-wrapper> .
It looks like they offer similar functionality. I would be curious to find out if you (or anyone here) has tried both and prefers one over the other, and why? Does anyone know the developer of overpy? I would prefer it if we could combine efforts rather than maintain two separate projects. The python package world is already messy and I hate contributing to that :/

(Yes, imposm is developed in Python but there's no documentation I can find on how to use it as a Python library--it appears to be intended as a command line tool). This seems odd to me since there's such a large community of OSM users. I feel like I'm missing something. Are there other viable Python libraries I'm not aware of? (Viable = large-ish user base and history of bugfixing.) Is there documentation for using imposm within Python that I've overlooked?
