[talk-au] Google copying from OSM maps

I mapped some roads in the state forest I like to play in and noted they 
were substantially wrong in Google at the time. Couple of months later, 
four or five ? they were fixed in google. Vic forest maps still show 
them incorrectly but of course that could be just old releases, maybe 
the State data has been corrected and has flowed on to google ?

Very hard to establish cause and effect.

I guess we want to see all maps accurate ?
