Country based authorizations

Hello Community,

Recently I’ve been blocked by DWG because I edited some military landuses in Ukraine. Reasons have been discussed in private message exchanges with DWG and are not intended to be part of this issue. I hope not to bother anybody by using another account, since the block prevents me from edit, comment changesets and login into this forum.

Back to the issue:
I came across this changeset which reverts the work of previous mapper, because an “OSM UA team” declares mapping of military objects as “prohibited during rus - Ukrainian war”.

Did OSM Board made some statements regarding who can or cannot edit OSM database on a country or “team” base?

SG.
