suggest having source on the changeset even if you also have it on the
objects. import=yes is another common changeset tag

Subject: [Imports] Dutch addresses and buildings import from BAG




Saturday 16th November 2013 in total 13 members of the Dutch community
gathered and made decisions on the import of the official Dutch addresses
and buildings data, the BAG (baseregistration for addresses and buildings)
which is available under a public license. The Dutch community is very well
aware of the several opinions on imports of addresses and buildings.


Note that 2 new tags are introduced for data in the BAG database,
interesting enough for future information purposes in the OpenStreetMap


The info on the import can be found here:


Comments and questions welcome!


Cheers, Johan
