Hi Simon,

In relation to the "Legit", yes, your not the first one to raise this
question. I would be happy if you or someone within OSM community can
provide an example of Legit or Not Legit topo map as a source, if not for
this case then at least for the future.

Regarding the data itself, of course I still have the SHP File, I do fully
intend to start complementing OSM for Kosova and the region once the Dev.
Seed is done with the new tool they're working on. I think it'll make it a
lot easier then.
