[Imports] Spanish Cadastre Buildings Import

I’m not Spanish but I have done some building and house number mapping in Southern Spain. I have found that house numbers do not always match cadastre/reality, especially in expat heavy towns like the large areas around Marbella for instance, more specifically here: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/36.50963/-4.96382

So I would discourage uncritical house number imports from the cadastre at least.

The building quality is probably better, but also lacks in detail especially in areas like those in my link.

> Hello,
> The Spanish community is planning a country size manual import of building an addresses based on data from Cadastre and we would like to receive your comments.
> The proposal is documented here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Spanish_Cadastre/Buildings_Import. Is a quite extensive document splited in two different sections. The documents under Import Guide contains practical instructions for collaborators, the rest are the description of the import process itself.
> We are prepared to start as soon as possible in this two places:
> https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/M%C3%A1laga
> https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tenerife
> The plan is to gradually incorporate more volunteers and extend the process to more regions of the country. This process will take probably years.
> Please let me know if we can answer any questions.
> Thanks, Javier
