Thanks, ya your right :)
The show went good (IMO) as the question is now more apparent.
For government/bulk imports -where we know that updates are available;
how is it dealt with?
The solution is this IMO:
1- take the latest OSM Data, as a file; the exact size area of the
shape file to be imported.
2 - extract only the possable tags (if any) that are showing the same
info as you want to have the new data shown as.
3 -convert the OSM to shape file
4 - make a backup of OSM file
5 -remove those same selected osm data OUT OF the osm database.
6 - using whatever postGIS program, look at both shape files, and see
just how the 2 match up.
7 add osm tags the the whole thing.
8 use one of the bug finder tools to find duplicate data, and PERGE
all the info together.
9 the result is a file that contains; new imported data with osm tags,
untouched osm data (that no match was available), and perged data (osm
10 convert the file to OSM and upload to OSM.
Please poke fun at the steps, :)
