Addresses will be a OSM major topic in France in the coming months.

It is one of the main topic we will discuss next week during SOTM-FR in

We'e managed to build scripts to extract address data from the cadastre,
and conflates as far as possible with existing OSM data.
For example, the script links addresses to existing roads and buildings in
order to get a much better addr:street than the UPPERCASE abbreviated one
available in the original extracted data.
Where some ambiguities remains, a separate .osm file is generated to be
manually fixed.

The process works on a municipality by municipality basis, like our
building extraction scripts.

We are also thinking of setting up a geocoder using the raw extracted data
not integrated yet in OSM.
The raw data will be under ODbL because it is made of a mix of cadastre and
existing OSM data.
