Hi Walter,

Before I plan to upload the boundaries import data for Surabaya, I have
received some feedback and helped by Ivan Garcia
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Capiscuas> who has expertise in
correcting boundaries and has previously worked with us in settling Jakarta

The current raw file has the boundary relations already, which I think is
quite accurate. I will send the link to the raw gis data when it's uploaded
on github.

In regards to the current boundaries in Surabaya, we had contacted those
who mapped them previously but they were unable to provide the data license
/ approval and I believe our data which is formally attained from
Indonesian government is more accurate.

I might need to clarify that HOT Indonesia, which is where I work now, has
not focused its work yet on the issue of data import due to some problem
attaining the data from Indonesian government and in explaining about the
sensitivity of it to Indonesian OpenStreetMap Community. Thank you very
much for your input, we plan to work more on correcting this issue
following OpenStreetMap procedures of validating existing data and
improving data quality in the incoming project.
