Hello and happy New Year to all.

In the wake of issues between OpenStreetMap contributors in Thailand and editors from GlobalLogic [1] I've decided to review a selection of edits in the Philippines done by the GlobalLogic team over the past 12 months.

As soon as I started my review, I immediately spotted at least one iffy changeset [2] which deleted all roads in Carnasa/Carnaza Island in northern Cebu. The said changeset was reverted afterwards [3]. In addition, I saw a bad practice, which is deleting and re-creating a feature, as what happened to the area around the Magellan Shrine in Lapu-Lapu City [4]. However, not all edits are destructive as new roads were added in places such as Pampanga [5]

>From what I've seen so far, there is a common theme among GlobalLogic edits, such as addition, reclassification and modification of streets. In fact, most of the edits revolve around highway data.

For those interested in reviewing the edits made by the GlobalLogic team, I left a link at the bottom of this email [6].
