Having two tasking managers for the same response area is of course going to
create conflicts. There's no need at all to create jobs for Haiti on another
tasking manager. Simply, communicate the needs for mapping, including AOI,
need, etc, to the HOT activation team and it will be prioritized and set up.

New update about ourcontribution to the OSM Map4Haiti mapping. Job#45 is almost
done now and we will start mapping the rural areaswithin the hills of
département of Grande-Anse, over the communes ofAbricots, Dame-Marie,
Chambellan, Moron, Anse d'Hainault and GrandeAnse, located in the most affected
areas by Hurricane Matthew (UNOSATimpact zone 1, with winds over 120 km/h) with
job#64, continuing our systematic, consolidated effort over thehills (called
mornes in Haiti).
We hold an agileSOTM today here at Université Alassane Ouattara and will have a
teamof crisis mapping during the whole day to show students and peoplewhat it
is. No newcomer will be invited to map on Haiti from Bouakébut invited to
become a local mapper, raise his skills and join laterwhen experienced enough.
I hope this messageis read by the HOT US coordination team, especially Dale
October 8 6:30 PM UTCI communicated about job #39about pre-disaster mapping
over Jeremie. On October 12, whenour mapping is almost done on Central Jeremie,
we figure out peopleare mapping on the area, due to a HOTUS job #2228 created
by Dale Kunce. We stopped and quicklydetected all the mistakes done by very
October 12 11:40 AMUTC I communicated on the hot list including regarding
job#45 about mapping Jeremie’s hinterland. Later this day, HOTUS job #2224
covering an area slightly smaller inside the one Imade was created by Dale
Kunce... As if there was no other places to bemapped in Haiti...
So far, we created 7jobs over Haiti, I communicated about them and they are all
onthe http://taches.francophonelibre.org frontpage, so it is not a big deal
justto check them.
@Dale I think HOT UScreated a curriculum to raise skills to become Crisis
activators, Iwould advise you to read it one day when you have a bit of time.
If ever it does not mention to read andcommunicate in the hot list during an
activation, I would suggest toadd it into the documentation. As an incorporated
company, HOT US may have its own internaltools to organize its mapping, but the
minimum is to communicate abit on the hot list with the OSM community, who is
the holder of thislist (as everything with @openstreetmap.org).
If you now create anew job covering job#45, I may try next time to create a job
in the middle of thewater, just to see if you jump on it.
