Hi Rafael,

There are al4, al5, al6 and al8-boundaries in osm. i think, the geometry 
of the new al8-boundaries, wich will be imported, are much better then 
the existing ones.
You describe, what to do whith that old data: delete it and replace it. 
And that ist ok for me.

Everybody should take care of al5 and al4. The newly added limits have 
to be used by those relations too (exept al2). I'v added two screenshots 
of my boundary map (e.g. 
to show them.

I checked your work in nigeria and it is ok to me - i know that you do 
it right. Hopefully jo has the same experiance like us.

i 'm based in germany.

 From my point of view you have to discuss the licence with the 
Licensing Working Group 
<http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Licensing_Working_Group> of OSM. 
THEY should say that this is ok. Otherwise you (and we) risk that our 
work will be removed very quickly. Sarah is a great help but that is not 

I will not add one node without OSM-Permission.
