Hi all,

I've sent an email 5 weeks ago, an other one 4 weeks ago, to the Imports
mailing-list considering this import :

This is the first import for
Senegal<http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/SEN_Imports>done as a part
of the HOT
Senegal Project <http://hot.openstreetmap.org/projects/senegal_0>. Its goal
is to include the ARD-STL (Agence Régionale de Développement de
Saint-Louis) & CSE (Centre de Suivi Ecologique) data for administrative
boundaries and administrative centers for the region of Saint-Louis,

It has been really great to obtain this data from local authorities,
knowing that this kind of data is habitually really hard to find for local
students, NGOs, companies...and could be haggled in some regions.
New HOT field deployments begin in Senegal, Togo and Burkina Faso, with
Senegalese volunteers, it could be great if this import sets a precedent
quickly, helping volunteers to debate on this subject.

Without any answer, I don't know if I should wait longer, so I send this
third email to IMPORTS and HOT mailing-lists. Hope that somebody can give
me some information and/or check the import wiki page to give any
comment/advise if necessary.

Thank you in advance, have a nice day!
