As per this thread on talk-au, a user was found to be importing data
without consultation of the community and data which we don't appear
to have a suitable license for.
These are their changesets for their imports before a block was
imposed on the user.
We can't just run a normal revert as the data will appear in the ODBL
history dumps which we can't have as we don't believe we have a
license allowing this data to be distributed under that license.
Could you wipe the data created from these changesets?
PS. I'm currently running a revert script of their other "FIX SOURCES"
