Thank you! Yes, since I've managed most of the edits in the area myself for
the past couple of years, and I know the other active OSM editor in the
area who has encouraged me to import the buildings, there is no historical
conflicts from the community. However, I might try to preserve some of the
history of downtown buildings using the replace geometry plugin, since
those buildings were drawn before I started mapping the area. I was just
told about the plugin this morning.
