Looks good to me and a great follow up to the Dallas project.  I would suggest contacting the project lead for project 95, they appear to work at mapbox.  I contacted the mapbox user that created a digitizing project that overlapped my import project and they changed the status on the intersecting tiles to done.  This is keeping people from digitizing when they could be importing higher quality data.

Subject: [Imports] Fort Worth, Texas import

Hello all-

With the Dallas building import completed except for 1 or 2 residential blocks, I've begun planning a building import for Fort Worth, the next largest city in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

The permissions, process, and test results have been documented on the Wiki here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Fort_Worth,_Texas_import .

There have also been some recent initiatives by the community (see http://tasks.openstreetmap.us/project/95 ) to trace buildings, and so I'd like to accelerate this import project and have the community help double check the imported data. This will help save the community's time from having to start with a blank slate vs. being a pair of fresh eyes that can make the data really, really good.

As always, any feedback would be much appreciated.

Best Regards, 

Andrew Matheny
