Dear Jean-Guilhem,
(Nicolas, Mikel, Robert, Kate: if you have tips on undeleting in
general / in the Haiti context pls do share them.)

Excuse me for answering only in English but I it seems that you
understand English well (and hope that Google Translate does a decent
enough job for those who don't). I'll try to use my (crappy) French
when I have better time...

Thanks for bringing this to the attention of others (as well as making
note on the tertiary issue, which I'll comment separately).

I don't know this new user who has done the deletions but I will ask
at our next mapping "party" (or perhaps rather an "OSM meetup") at the
Grass Roots United resource center (http://j.mp/osm-gru) next
(upcoming) Friday afternoon (5/27).
... As a sidenote, if you are (or anyone else who is) in Haiti: From
now on we'll have weekly OSM meetups / mapping parties (?) at the GRU
resource center starting at noon that are (obviously) open to anyone
and everyone interested in OSM/mapping Haiti. (I'll make a separate
announcement with the approriate subject).

I'm copying this note to a few people who are / have been active here
and know more about fixing deletions that I do hoping that they could
perhaps share some knowledge about how to tackle the deletions.
Quite frankly, I'm a near newbie when it comes to undeleting /
reverting changes and I'd really want to get help on that so I don't
mess up more than I may already have in the undeletionings I've

* I'll ask if someone knows this new mapper
(http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Josep3) and can contact him via
other means
* If no one else fixes the deletions before we'll look at this at out
meetup/mapping party.
- Hopefully we'll get some more experienced help to the undeleting or
at least re-inforcement to how to do it.
