I put the following on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:2010_Colombia_floods/ImportMuni in the past couple of minutes.  Thanks for your input. --ceyockey => http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Ceyockey

(section) OCHA boundary versus previously loaded boundary data
The image at right ( http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/File:OCHA_versus_prior_import_boundary_discrepancy.png ) shows discrepancy between OCHA-based municipality data and previously loaded boundary data. The question is whether OCHA data should replace the prior data or not. Options include

   1. delete old data in preference of new data
   2. merge old data into new data (to preserve some part of history)
   3. retain both
   4. create a new boundary which is a merged average of the two 

My feeling is that option 1 would be the most practical way forward. --10:25, 30 December 2010 (UTC)
