Again, with sarcasm.

Frederik and Tom, please explain what has been wrong with the last import, and why osm_conflate + cf_audit tools used for it (conflation + community validation) still do not attain the required quality for OSM contributions?

How would you build a process for importing large batches of business chains? Can I improve something in my tools, or should I build something better from scratch?

Or do you think the map does not need imports and that every shop and amenity will be mapped without them before they are out of business?
