Thank you. That is a clear answer. It must also explain why there are
no places yet in cities such as Marseilles, France. As you can
probably guess I found this out because I plan to launch
internationally. In fact I hope is one of those
"providers" that adds great quality content to your places database.
Here are a couple of follow ups if I can have them:

Is there a way that I can get a schedule or RSS feed of these data
migrations, as well as the availability of places in international
locations? (Such as France, Germany, Spain , Italy, Israel)? It would
also be good to know well as what areas are not "read only" now if

We are doing a *very strong* twitter integration, and think we will be
a great partner.
