Thank you very much Elliot. I really appreciate the info.

I've seen the agreements with LINZ, which makes these imports possible
And I'm definitely keen to discuss and collaborate with the OSM NZ
community to ensure that utilising and updating OSM is done in a proper way.
ECan does want to trial using the OSM waterways for some of our purposes
and being able to feed improvements back to OSM.

I did try https://chat.nzoss.nz/channel/opengis , but I seem to just get a
loading screen unfortunately (on Chrome). But I would definitely love to
talk with some knowledgeable OSM people about this.

Thanks again,
