Thanks Josephine for the replies, makes sense to me :-) Looking forward to
talk about this in more detail.

Thanks for the feedback!
- Pre-filling the description and categories will be relatively trivial as
we already do this in some situations (e.g. uploads from our "nearby places
that need photos" map), and we do intend pre-filling to be part of the
feature when we implement it.
- The choice of data set is indeed a major concern. I had a brief
discussion with Lodewijk and Stephen about this earlier, but the consensus
was that we should discuss it with all of you (the national organizers).
When we start the planning process in 1-2 months' time, I will probably
create a page where everyone can provide their input on the suitability of
various sources for their country.
