Hi Kevin, many thanks for responding. A big thanks for tasking for more
imagery as well ..

So .. I guess to answer what I understand to be the question, all available
HiRes imagery is published already on the MapBox Layer and has a license to
trace for OSM, in Cameroon, provided that an attribution similar to the one
below is made

#hotosm-task-777, East Cameroon, source=DigitalGlobe/Mapbox

(change the task details, of course)

I am certain Kevin will advise when updated imagery becomes available at
some point in the future.

Cheers

Mark
