[Imports] Charging Stations in Italy

I made an analysis of the existing data in OSM (using the data loaded from
this URL:

There are 1.537 nodes, with 91 different fields, published by about 189
different users:

*car=* is never used.
*motorcar= *is used once.
*bicycle=* is used once.
*charging_station_type=bicycle* is used once.

Now I have a better picture: I agree, better leave it off.

Before you start doing any uploading, we really should take a

It is currently about 230 nodes, which shall grow soon to 300. And every
now and then the nodes are set to maintenance and back to active. We'd like
to update the nodes more often than every couple of months using the import

- what happens if a mapper deletes a charging station

If the station is known to be active, a warning is raised and manual
intervention will be required.

The new location will not be overwritten by the import procedure.

The import procedure will use the charging_station node id for operations.
Will the charging_station node id change following a merge operation?

> - what happens if a mapper adds more tags to the imported nodes

Tags would be overwritten. Is this okey?

> - what happens if a station is deleted from the source data

Stations deleted from the source data, or marked as inactive (e.g.
maintenance), will be removed from OSM.

Thanks for your help,
