[Talk-it] [Talk-de] Municipal GIS data for South Tyrol

I just discovered that some municipalities in South Tyrol made their GIS data available in the internet. The list is available under  (the website is available in Italian and German).
At least one municipality (Eppan/Appiano) made all the data completely public domain (the enactment is available at ):
DE "[...] wurde festgelegt, dass die im Eigentum der Gemeinde Eppan a.d.W. stehenden und im Internet veröffentlichten Daten frei und kostenlos genutzt und verteilt werden können."
IT "[...] è stato deciso che i dati di proprietà del Comune di Appiano s.S.d.V. pubblicati in internet possono essere utilizzati e divulgati liberamente e gratuitamente."
Eppan/Appiano also made all data downloadable as shapefiles ().
Now I'm not so sure what to do with all the data. I'm also confused a little bit, because of the fact that the provincial government is in possession of similar data which is not completely free to use, unfortunately (see discussion at )... It is also difficult the terms of usage for the data of the other municipalities.
However, it seems to be a great chance to bring the mapping process in South Tyrol a big step forward.
Does anyone know the procedure how to work such data into OSM?
PS: I posted this in the Italian as well as the German mailing-list, as the South-Tyroleans seem to be active in both of them. Feel free to answer in Italian or German in the respective lists.
