Hi Nicholas,

I would say the general mailing list 'talk' or the technical working
group may be better suited than the HOT list for your request.

See also:
"To avoid having your access blocked, please discuss your requirement
with system administrators either via their wiki pages or on the IRC
channel prior to starting."

Apart from that, some free and unchecked advice:
 - consider offline editor JOSM
 - use iD with zoom close in, not downloading large areas

Best of luck.
