[Talk-us] Undiscussed mass-revert by user Nakaner-repair

Hi All,

I noticed that user Nakaner-repair just reverted 1000+ changesets
throughout the United States without any discussion in the local community.
Nakaner-repair points to a thread in the German forum [0] that seems to
indicate that they think these edits were made by paid mappers. Having not
heard from those suspected paid mappers, they went ahead and reverted
without discussion from the local community.

Some questions:

Was this action made under the auspices of the Data Working Group?
Has the "directed mapping" policy been approved by the OSMF?

I'd be interested in seeing all of these reverts reverted (at least in the
US) until discussion can take place.
