All right, thanks for the clarification.
I would second the recommendation to the Canadian community to clear up
the wiki page and emphasize the requirements for participating in the
import. As it is now even a diligent mapper can easily get the
impression that you only need to make sure there are no formal errors
or overlaps with existing data and apart from that you can just upload
the prepared osm files. The fact that the data itself needs extensive
processing before the upload would need to be prominently stated with
any instructions i think.
