Because of the lag in MapOSMatic database update, it was not possible to use it for Haut-Richelieu street maps. I agree that we should coordinate efforts to move forward and shorten delays to produce such maps.

Boundary relations are an easy way to define areas to work on the field and, obviously, Map tools should permit to produce a map from these relations.
