Hi Gordon,  and welcome to you as well.

I'm not sure that we have guidance on that written down anywhere.  I
leave the attribution if I'm making a minor change and replace it if
I'm making a major revision.

So old canvec buildings that have since been demolished, I change to
landuse=brownfield and source=survey.

Any other suggestions on this?

Best regards,
