I've seen a much greater willingness to keep things up to date than to
generate new data in the first place. Now that we have a "complete" area
for Cambridge and environs, I've noticed that changes to detail I become
aware of have most often already been made: two pubs/hotels have changed
name, for example, and when I came to fix those, they'd already been done.
In rural areas, this might be trickier, as the density of people to
notice a change is lower.
BTW, a big change that is sweeping the UK this year is the closure of
about a quarter of the nation's post offices. Lists will be published,
and we should make sure we deal with these.
