This got dropped on the floor for over a year, but I finally got time to
work on it this weekend.
My current progress is a file with all the towns, which you can view at
The shapefile from VCGI was converted with ogr2osm, and overlapping ways
were split and converted to relations in JOSM (JOSM's validator made
this much easier than I expected).
I currently have boundary=administrative on the relations representing
each town, and nothing on the member ways. There doesn't seem to be
complete consensus on whether member ways should also be marked
boundary=administrative, with it being inconsistently applied in the
areas of neighboring states I checked. I decided to not duplicate the
Villages and county boundaries need to be added before it will be ready
for upload, and a wiki page will still need to be created.
