Dear Paul

thank you very much for taking care of this. There was some discussion in
Talk-BR on how to revert these old contributions without breaking too many
things, but I am afraid we arrived at no better solution than the one you
are suggesting.

Unfortunately, I can not offer to help on this, I have absolutely no idea
how to perform a redaction.

Sadly, we are stumbling almost on a daily basis on data that might have
been copied from Google in one way or another. One user told me he did not
knew this was not allowed. Curiously, this user had collected the data on
his own, being a local resident, but he decided to use the same exact
wording for a highway as used by Google thinking that he was sticking to
some sort of standard. I told him no to, but clearly there seems to be a
major communication problem here. Any ideas on how we could prevent this to
happen *before* people enter the data into the map?

again, many thanks for your help and best wishes
