Since community.openstreetmap.org is more accessible than the mailing list, would it be worth considering to add an imports category here that can be another place by which to communicate on imports?
Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?
Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve
For discussion about imports and proposed imports
Why is this new category needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?
There is not a dedicated category for imports, making it harder to find discussions about them. The community forum is more accessible than the mailing list, and thusly should have an imports board.
Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?
Current volume of messages on the former platforms, if any (per week/per month)
Import discussions fluctuate, but there’s generally at least 1-2 discussions each month.
Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)
Not yet, but I think it’s worth considering to eventually migrate the mandatory imports discussion to the community forum.
