Hi,
Just a quick note about coordination. Unfortunately I don't have much time today to take care of this myself.

Everyone working on this, please make sure to coordinate the efforts and avoid duplicated work. If you have more detailed specifications from Jochen, please share them in the Wiki and here on OSM-Talk.
As soon as we have PDFs that matches Jochen's needs, please also update the Wiki and OSM-Talk.
I've added a task in the Wiki, you can add additional information there and also add your name, if you're working on it: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WikiProject_Haiti#tasks

Jonas
