When you say "seeded", what do you mean?

What data are you "seeding" and where does it come from?

Where is your Wiki page on the import?

What steps have you taken for community review or collaboration?

Where is this wiki page, and why is this import only being announced for
review after it's been started?

If my tone sounds hostile, I'm sorry, but I'm a bit frustrated about imports
that are done, then announced, and this is the third I've heard about this
weekend, and this isn't how imports are supposed to be done, not in the
project as a whole, but especially not in the US.
