Yesterday, I stumbled into large changesets (>50K additions)[0] over Cameroon.
Inspecting further this looks like landuse/cover data taken from
satellite imagery and then converted to vector [1].

Further, this seems like a group mapping [2].  9 people with changeset
comment ENEO in Cameroon.

Looking into the osm wiki, I didn't see any document about this.  I've
not inspected any further if data is good or not.  Its just that the
changeset is too big.
I'm posting here since I know we have HOT initiatives in the region
(might be related, might be not).  I'm just curious.
