Sorry for cross posting. Copying Talk-GH.
Am Enock from Ghana. OSM contributor. I've read the import guidelines and
know very well about them. Here is an issue I will like a bit of
clarification and community's take on.
Ghana has admin boundaries for districts, 216 of them. Personally I
think it should be available to the public at no cost or under any
copyright since it has been created by a government agency. From data
(mostly shapefiles) I've come across relating to this, there seems to
be no valid metadata about what/who/when and Ghana's Open data portal
doesn't have anything on this either.
Taking a look at this  and their respective sources as Wikipedia.
My question here isn't this enough to go ahead and document an import of
these districts of Ghana based on Wikipedia since there already exist
data in OSM based on this? If yes or no, why and what do you recommend?
Looking forward to your views on this.
