Dear everyone,

Currently on field in Samar and Leyte. Obviously, many of the typhoon
damaged areas tagged as landuse=brownfield are now back to
landuse=residential.  I am changing the tags as I see them along our
route.  I think by default, this should be re-tagged to
landuse=residential but, we are also seeing previously residential
areas that were abandoned due to the risk.

At one time, during the Ruby/Hagupit response, we discussed to re-tag
brwonfields to residential.  As I said above, there are exceptions.
Should we do this?  What's the best approach?
