[Talk-nz] Continuing the import of LINZ data into OSM

My limited experience is to note elements typically dated to 2012 or earlier

For items that refer to the natural environment, such a rivers and 
vegetation, I regulalry note recent aerial imagery has ''moved on'' from 
what was imported .

With rivers the import might have included gravel banks. Typically these 
change their position each wet season.

In my experience, vegetation, especially in places with little or no 
human activity, openings and scrub had become, or was tending to natural 
wood, or similar.  And many areas marked as ''managed forest'' tended to 
be pine plantations that had now passed their use by date (were not in 
fact managed).

My suggestion is imports be only for the built environment.
