Correcting international waters for Ceuta and Melilla.
Hello and welcome to OpenStreetMap!
Can you explain a little bit what you mean by "Correcting international waters for Ceuta and Melilla"? As you're no doubt aware it's a sensitive issue, and all sides of the discussion will want to understand what's happened here, including changes to names, geometry, notes on some of the items etc.
A little bit of explanation now might help to prevent problems further on.

Hello Andy, thanks for the welcoming!
I meant to say "territorial waters" (12nm). The lines for the maritime boundaries of Ceuta and Melilla were there already, but overwritten in a way that they seem internal Moroccan waters and mentioning a conflict that really doesn't exist. This is not a sensitive issue, like it is further south with Western Sahara/Morocco or with Gibraltar (I am not touching anything there): these boundaries are internationally recognized as per UNCLOS. This site: http://www.gibnet.com/fish/waters.htm shows the Gibraltar point of view on it, which seems quite neutral and clearly shows Ceuta's waters (same applies for Melilla). Previous lines on OSM were from EUROSION dataset as per comments/notes, but I have no means to open this data (https://www.eea.europa.eu/data-and-maps/data/maritime-boundaries#tab-gis-data).
