For completeness, the "imports" thread from May is at 
and the equivalent "talk-gb" thread at 
. The actual data was found to have useful components, but had a number 
of errors (invalid street names and implausible opening hours among 
others).  You then raised it again last month 
, and then just over three weeks ago announced 
http://audit.osmz.ru/project/shell in 
.  That (and presumably also http://audit.osmz.ru/project/walmart ) is a 
great way to check through the data and to determine the tags to be 
copied over.

There are still things that would benefit from verification though; in 
the Shell case for example "NVDS353-12302183" 
http://audit.osmz.ru/run/shell/NVDS353-12302183 is suggested to be added 
as a new node when https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/5249220844 is 
clearly the item to be updated (it's relatively new, but has preseumably 
been mapped from survey and is also on ESRI's imagery for the area).  
I'd expect the same to be true of Walmart - lots of the data will be 
correct, but it'll still need checking to pick up the occasional issue.
