[OSM-talk] Zero tolerance on imports

This is a very good point. In the past I have thought about contacting the
mappers active in a particular area but it's a pain in the a*se to do
something that should be trivial. The current OSM messaging system could
really do with a bit more "social" thinking not just relying on users adding
their names to wiki pages that most people probably don't even know exist.

Quite a few areas are covered these days by user groups or dedicated mailing
lists. It might be a good idea if those areas were stored and then when
someone starts mapping in the area then JOSM/Potlatch/etc. could pop up a
box saying you should check out the Wiki/Website for the group, where they
could state their views on things like imports.
