This is a cross post from the imports-list as I think the relates to the
Mali activation earlier this year. So I guess this is probably also of
interest for this list. But I guess any answer should go to the

I don't know if this is same dataset as mentioned in [1].

I just got aware of an import done in February 2013, which seems it went
wrong (I wrote to the user and he told me that apparently the dataset
provided by a tier organization working with HOT team had a bad format or
wrong localization).

The node in question that caught my attention is this one:
http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/node/2163840618  (wonder what
source=Bing means in this context ;-) ).

My suggestion would be to revert the whole dataset (or better those object
still in version 1), as a wrong pharmacy is probably worse than no pharmacy
at all in the map (in the latter case you'd ask someone where the next
pharmacy is, while in the first case you might be misled by the map).
