Hi,

According to the License Working Group, a new set of mass mails are
sent to  all users who did not agree to the new contributor terms yet
[0, see item 5].  We have around 400++ [1] users in the Philippines
who have not agreed so far.  I hope more of them would finally agree,
however, there will be cases that the user won't agree until the final
cut-off.

I am listing areas where we might lose data [2].  I don't know if
there are people here who have started re-mapping but just listing the
areas is very helpful to give us an overview.  Please add other areas.
