OpenStreetMap collects information, verifiable on the ground.

You do not have to use OSM for sharing data. Why don't you just upload
the data on your personal website or the website of your university?

You wrote at the changeset discussion at

OpenStreetMap claims rights on data derived from OpenStreetMap data.
That's why we should respect the copyright and database rights of LUBW.
Therefore I do not recognize your data you derived from the LUBW data as
public domain you claim your data to be.

Without a written permission by LUBW your upload will be reverted.

> May I have the approval to begin the uploading?. Where i can upload (.osm file) for review before uploading on OSM ?

You will have to wait at least one week (better two) in order that
everybody who is interested is able to ask you questions. If there are
some issues open or after your revert issues arise which are against
your import, your import might be reverted.

Best regards
