I need to know how Geonames data dumps can be used to create a hierarchy like their webservice API provides. Is this site the place to ask this sort of question?

I will of course make a fuller, proper question if I'm in the right place !

EDIT: Of course the question goes on the site proper, rather than the meta...

Modulo the usual stuff on asking good quesions, providing context, covering what doesn't work or what provokes confusion, etc.
