Redaction question

Posted by Bronco351 on 26 July 2012 in English (English)

This might sound a like dumb question.

But will the data be restored if the users that uploaded them have accepted the new license. Because lots of data is being deleted and it might take a very long time to fix it.

I believe it is too late to restore the data as there are so many people remapping affected areas already; restoring now might lead to duplicate items, which will only become more likely as time passes. When I have odd moments I am helping with some of the tasks shown at http://rebuild.poole.ch/ to help with the remapping exercise.

I do not know if they have stored the redacted data in some way, if they have, than it might be possible but would require lots of manual labor. If not, remapping is the only solution.

Osmi has a redaction bot layer that helps with remapping. http://rebuild.poole.ch/ is also usefull.

There'll never be an automatic "redaction undo" for users who finally accept : conflicts are likely, and it'd be a lot of coding work for a rare/low_impact event. If an undo is ever performed, it'll probably be a manual, case-by-case affair.
