I think it is entirely reasonable for Frederik to ask these questions in
the polite, concise way that he does. Imports have a chequered history
in OSM. Local ownership seems to make a big difference.
In my opinion quality of map improvements is more important than speed
of delivery. If quality and speed can go hand in hand then so much the
better, but imports that quickly fill an empty space have not always
turned out to be very valuable.
I can make no judgement about this particular import, but Frederik is
entitled to ask pertinent questions and I support his effort to keep the
data quality high.
Cheers, Chris (chillly)
