Hi y'all,

Putting on record that I was part of those who requested FB to
generate road detection for the Philippines there are a few more
people involved.
I defer to these individuals if they want to put forward their names.

While I agree that a few people does not necessarily represent the
whole local community,
I believe those we talked to initially were the most active both in
mapping and community-building in the Philippines.

As mentioned in the announcement, organized mapping effort will only
be initiated if there are local groups (local in the geographic region
they want to map) willing to manage and coordinate.
However, individual mappers who want to use existing detections
provided by FB can directly map their own mapping patches via RapiD.
