Hi all,

the Notes features is active since April now.

Many users have started creating Notes (OSN) instead of OpenStreetBug
(OSB) entries.

I'm currently trying to push the phase out of OSB with various methods:

* Updating the wiki with deprecation notices of OSB [1]
* Collecting infomations about programs that are still using OSB [2]
* Wrote a blog entry to sketch the phase out [3]
* created stats about the distribution of bugs [4] ... and started
fixing and reviewing bugs in Africa and other areas with low bug density
* created a wiki page to organize the phase out [5]

Most of the Open Bugs are in Germany and in Russia:

Currently there are about 41000 open bugs in the OSB database.

I think the best strategy is to fix as many open bugs as possible and
close all bugs that are no longer valid.
In about two month, make a mapping party and review the remaining bugs
and move good bug reports to OSN.

For some tasks I need some help:
1. Please fix as many bugs as possible. (all mappers, especially local)
2. Collect more programs and websites that are creating OSBs [2]
3. update Wiki main pages to use OSN instead of OSB:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Af:Main Page
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Fi:Main Page
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Fi:WikiProject Finland
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Id:Halaman Utama
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Ko:첫 페이지
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Si:Main Page
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Sr:Main Page
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Th:Main Page
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Uk:Main Page

If you speek one of the language, can you change the wiki page, please?

https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main page beta
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Main Page/test
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Portals beta

What are the test and beta pages good for? Update them, too?

Any comment and help is welcome

Thanks and regards
