First of all, thank you for great effort on this activity!

I would like to propose following actions.

* 1. Priority Urgent/Medium -> Low
Almost 2 weeks passed and we have no additional post quake on that area.
And I could not hear any utilize of OSM on there.
(An inquiry about bad data quality has posted on talk-ja ML from local

I have privilege on the TM3, so will change it by myself.

* 2. Some reporting encouraged?
Humanitarian mapping activities are pretty effective and needed.
We may save many lives by mapping.

And feedback exchange between local and remote could make it better.
Could we have some reporting from Project organizer when we have Urgent
mapping task on Tasking Manager?

I think Urgent task means "Great Impact to local", so if we could get some
feedback from those projects, we may have a chance to build more better
mapping practice.

Additionally, could we have any periodically priority review on somewhere
(possibly inside of HOT WG)?
Tasking Manager cause great rush of edits onto local (especially Urgent
task) sometimes it causes harm on local data and community.
