As an OpenStreetMap contributor, I can understand the usage of a 'data
upload' feature, but in direction of OSM's servers, nos the Marcus
ones. Furthermore, I also know many web services that offer the
ability to share GPS tracks.
At the same time, I don't know if it is the responsability of
FoxtrotGPS to do this job. Perhaps FoxtrotGPS can restrict to display
and record data, delegating the management of these data to other more
Desktop-oriented GPS data editors. I don't know.
