Looking on direction of how to cleanup and verify an import (not done by
me). I'm no GIS expert and starting to learn, helping where I can for now.
I'm not sure the user GregoryM is active, bringing this finding here for
community attention.

First, I came across a data import project in Prince George's County
Maryland which claimed Public Domain for the data and stated they were an
intern at the associated Planning Department and no longer work there, this
import was discssed previously on talk-us as noted on
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/M-NCPPC_Planning_Department.

Recent License Clarification:
The GIS Open Data Portal never had an explicit licsense stated:
https://web.archive.org/web/20190328183204/http://gisdata.pgplanning.org/opendata/
I
had been trying to get an explicit liscense applied through various
contacts and now we have CC-BY 4.0 clearly stated:
http://gisdata.pgplanning.org/opendata/

I updated the license statement on the Potential Sources and Import
planning:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Potential_Datasources#Prince_George.27s_County.2C_Maryland
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/M-NCPPC_Planning_Department#License

Can someone check if there were any elements imported and had
source=M-NCPPC applied? The cleanup would be to make sure that attribution
is applied for compliance with the data license.

Second, I would like to thank whomever has done a huge data import in
Prince George's County, Maryland!

Cheers,
