[talk-ph] OSM Notes opened for the Yolanda / Haiyan Typhoon and not yet resolved

I actually reached out to ChrisEspectato (via an OSM account message) on 21
February to ask about the purpose of the notes. If I haven't heard back
after some time I was planning on going through and closing the notes. With
the anonymous notes, reaching out isn't possible. I think it's good to
close some of the notes in the manner you mention.

There are certainly some notes leftover from Yolanda that could be resolved
(because they are no longer relevant or do not contain enough detail). On a
side note, there are also many tags related to the Yolanda response that
could be 'archived' or removed. Unfortunately this sort of cleanup work
tends to be a lot less interesting than adding new details and features to
the map.

All the best,
