Hi Jason,

I read over your wiki page. Can you please link to the data you want to 
import? Can you please provide evidence of that it's in the public 
domain? I presume you have something in writing from MSF, just 
link/include/upload that.

Can you provide links to your discussion with the appropriate local 

You say "Water point data will be maintained and updated with the help 
of the OSM community in Zimbabwe and the MSF team. " Can you tell us 
more about that? What have you planned? Who has committed to look after 
this? What sort, and how much, resources will MSF provide?

There are some `amenity=drinking_water` tagged around Harare. How 
different is that from what you'd like to upload? Would it be worth 
"conflating" in that too?

I suggest adding `import=yes` to the changeset tags.

All the best,
