Check out LINZ2OSM for another project that has a large number of datasets and a distributed (small at the moment) workforce.


The tool is open sourced and provides a nice way to export sections that people can work on and mark as done when they are finished. It also has a powerful tagging solution for complex source data. We don't do anything around updates to data yet.
