Much of what they'd added in their previous edits in OSM had been 
reverted previously.  I'm reverting the new stuff (see 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/106917429 ), and any of the old 
stuff left (which at the very least is untrustworthy since all recent 
edits are just vandalism).  If that's too drastic I can instead only do 
the last week.

With regard to vandalism reports, an email to the Data Working Group 
(see https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Data_Working_Group , email via  
data at openstreetmap.org ) will normally suffice, rather than the main 
talk list.  This area is subject to quite a lot of vandalism, for 
obvious reasons, and there are a number of OSM mappers (not just the 
DWG) helping keep on top of things here.  Normally things get picked up 
in less than a week, but this didn't happen in this case.

If anyone's got any specific queries about the detail of these edits or 
this revert it's probably better to comment on the changeset or mail the 
DWG directly rather than the main talk list, although I'd argue that 
"what sort of tagging makes sense for the country and sub-country 
entities that there are here" does make sense for an international list 
(either here or tagging).

Best Regards,

Andy (from the DWG)
