Hi Karl,

That's great news :-) The difficulty is that most often, organizations 
who turn up with large amounts of data to import (as you have) get help 
from an experienced local member of the community - because they are the 
people with the most interest in the import happening. However, it's 
quite possible that either there are no OSM people in Greenland or, if 
there are, that they are not on this mailing list. And I don't think 
there's a registry of where people live (odd for a mapping project...).

You could ask the wiki admins for a list of accounts who have set theit 
default language to Kalaallisut, but it's quite possible that most 
people leave it as the default of English. Or you could try contacting 
WikiProject Denmark http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Denmark for help 
- there's a list of people on that page.
