Osmose also do this.
It's not quite evident, you have to map field with tags. Sometime you 
have to parse text field to map into many osm tags. You have to select a 
projection, and guess it when you don't know witch. I even see OpenData 
file with different projections without indicator! You have to choose a 
reference tag/field and/or, or if any, choose a conflation distance and 

With Osmose you have to write a mapping configuration, the result is :
- found OSM data not in reference OpenData file
- found non integrated data in OSM, integration can be achevied by a 
JOSM remote link
- suggest integration of OpenData on OSM object, addition/coorection of 
tag can be achieved by a JOSM link
- an augmented OpenData file "by OSM", with OSM data not in reference 
file and with OSM new tags

Look at slide 14-17 of my talk at last SotM :
