Hi Frederik, and thank you very much for reviewing my work.

I understand and I agree with your opinion. Certainly the area I know
best is Lecce, for which some of the work has already been done with
the import Lecce, which contained the same data as the Apulia CTR.
That work was also done on my request from a person who did not know
the places, but this has given me and many others people a base
(buildings designed) to deepen and detail the mapping of those areas.
Today there are peoples from Taranto and Brindisi who are awaiting my
work for the import, but do not have the technical knowledge required
to perform an import (even the knowledge of JOSM to be able to solve
all the possible conflicts between geometries).
So if I will be able to complete the import at least for the provinces
of Taranto and Brindisi, surely other mappers will have the
opportunity to use my work.
Nevertheless I think you're right when you talk about good example,
then I will restrict my work on the wiki to the province of Lecce,
like you suggested.

My prediction may be optimistic I fear, in fact, that one year may not
be enough if the work must be well done. Often the hurry to complete
the import means poor quality!

Bye and thank you again
