Thanks Pete.
Looking at the Ebola activation, people trace every path, sometimes a few hundred meters, going in all directions. This adds noise to the map. We could have this same problem in Nepal rural areas.  Mountains area are also particular. 

In many areas, only paths connect the villages. But these are the main ways to circulate. 

All airfields are also important to report. They are probably already there. But it his important to revise.

Pierre, I have added some tagging guides from the Nepal roads wiki page to the task instructions. Mostly applies to urban settings, but hopefully it helps (especially if new mappers join the task)...

Maning please contact and ask him to contact me individually. We need infos to coordinate.
First task is ready.http://tasks.hotosm.org/project/994
I give instructions to avoid to trace every paths in the fields. This make more difficult to read maps. Other activators, please do not hesitate to edit and complete the job instructions.

Not succeeded yet to contact Katmandu lab folks.

We plan to concentrate on roads. No priority established yet as the areas to cover. I will prepare first a task for the area north of Kathmandu in the mountains.

Wiki page for this earthquake: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/2015_Nepal_earthquake Let's hope our friends a the Kathmandu Living Labs are all safe today.
Because the community is strong in Nepal (and particularly Kathmandu), the map is already pretty good. Let's hope aid agencies will found out about our maps and find them useful.
We should be wary of unleashing task manager jobs on the area. We must particularly try to avoid the mess created by people getting carried away with landuse but in silly square shapes (don't do this!)
But there's some work to do. I see a few settlements and their connecting roads in the river valleys to the northwest of Kathmandu, where we could improve the map remotely a bit.
See the above wiki page where we can post more coordination info

Have uploaded some high resolution osm extracts of downtown Kathmandu and Patan to wiki commons that could come in handy for immediate print use:

I’m hearing from old Red Cross friends that many places outside Kathmandu are also affected. I think we should worry about the city of Pokhara too, it’s a major city basically equidistant from the earthquake.
