When an import completes, three numbers are presented:
New Entries Added: This is how many entries were completely new, i.e. they
weren't in the database before.

Entries Updated: This is how many entries were already in the database but the
data being imported differs from the data already in the databse. This could
happen, say, if a street has been renamed or if the coordinates for a location
have been refined.

Duplicate Entries Ignored: This is how many entries were already in the
database for which the data being imported is exactly the same as that already
in the database.
