[HOT] One year ago the HOT community started West Africa Ebola response

According to the logs on the HOT list it started on 24th, with 45-50 
e-mails related to the ebola response in the first 24 hours, and 3 tasks 
initiated that same day, which tends to show a pretty good reactiveness.

It could be instructive to do the same investigations directly in the 
OSM base. My feeling is that on this crisis the emerging African OSM 
communities made a difference.
