Sorry, this time as text:

Hi Andrea,

good point with the QA in wiki. This is assured by the tasking manager. I made a remark about this in the wiki entry.

Then, the spreadsheet format (csv) was easy for me as I have no experience with geographic file formats, but some Python editing of csv.
We're importing addresses, so we're focusing on addresses only. Moreover, it's still enough work to do (about 400'000 addresses). That alone will take us months to years (almost for sure) to be done properly. Therefore, it's all about addresses here!
But of course everyone is free to add information about roads. And maybe one time in the future to start a new project naming all roads.

Hi Michael,

Moreover, I can't see anything about QA in the wiki.Here I don't know what you would like to suggest. We did have a thorough look at the data, and there are exceptions where we will not use the data, and also a transformation to mach osm tagging scheme. Most of this was discussed on the Swiss mailing list (We did post a link to this mailing list in the initial Mail in November. Look for discussion threads mentioning GEBADR or Gebäudeadressen Bern)
Also, due to the manual process, each address will be checked by a mapper who is at least familiar with mapping in the canton of Bern.
Please elaborate if I did not answer your question.
I'm sorry, I'll try to explain. I'm not talking about upstream (or transformed) data verification but post import quality assurance. 
After importing address data, you will likely discover that:
* some road names previously inserted in OSM are wrong or they are spelled slightly different;
* some roads are already in OSM but they don't have a name (but now you can get it from the nearby house addresses);
* there are missing roads that have house addresses around.

I think you should have a process to catch these issues and fix them.
