How to improve OSM: kill the bureaucracy 20 days ago

If the tagging mailing list is "not providing "material of any substance"", why keep it? ;-)

How to improve OSM: kill the bureaucracy 21 days ago

Contrary to imports, there's no such thing as a tagging approval process.

Good. So I'll just crack on and start adding tags to objects, document it on the wiki and unsubscribe from the waste of life that is Tagging-l. That's a win for today.

Besisdes, you want to fix wiki-related problems by adding another wiki ??

Nope. One should be enough. :)

The imports that "skip the approval process" are the people who go "urgh, I can't be fucked, I'm going to go watch TV".

The wiki not matching reality: well, the page for Key:wikidata doesn't tell you where the mailing list discussions are happening. It's not joined up. Moving all the discussion on to the wiki would mean that people could see what's going on.

As for lack of process for cleaning the wiki? There doesn't seem to be any kind of deletion process or rules for saying "this stuff is old, we can get rid of it now". I may have overlooked them.

Hello OSM 5 months ago

Great to have someone in Florida to map. I was in Orlando on vacation in February (for Disney etc. and also visited Tampa) and added a lot of stuff when I was there. There's lots to do in Florida.

Routing, it mostly works about 2 years ago

I haven't. I'll download a more up-to-date version of the TalkyToaster file and see if that helps.
