I am conscious that it is now over 6 months since the data was  
offered. I do realise that a lot of technical work and familiarisation  
has been taking place but it would be great to be able to complete the  
import and move on.

I am also aware that there is a 50K place gazetteer sitting there  
untouched - last week I was adding villages in Norfolk by hand and the  
data is sitting available in NPTG.

Do you need help with the NaPTAN import or are you just about ready to  
do the work? Do we need to set up a wiki page where people can request  
imports for their authority or are we going to do it without that?
