I don't understand the link between your mail subject "Help wanted
cleaning up in Africa, needs JOSM and Todo plugin" and the Humanitarian
OpenStreetMap Team Mailing list. Maybe there is a context linked to
specific countries and a lot of mistakes related to a previous
activation, which could explain the link with HOT, if so please explain
it. If not, this email should be posted on the related-countries mailing
lists in appropriates languages.

Have a good day from Bouaké,
