I did not blame before, because I never contributed to nominatim. I'll
take some time this week to review issues and PR (although this week is
the QGIS hackfest).
But definitely, I'll use the open data day  dedicated to nominatim.
Maybe we can have a virtual meeting on March 3rd dedicated to nominatim
to coordinate actions.
