thanks, eric.

are you saying i need to get something more than the email i have
explicitly stating that i can import this data into OSM?

ill run & fix any validation errors during conflation/importing in JOSM.

the address points are a separate point layer, multiple points are not on
top of buildings, and there is not a direct link between them at this time.
pretty much singular point addresses are on buildings - i was not able to
acquire parcel data with "parcel addresses".

all the data processing was done in QGIS.
