this is true, but having public_transport:version on route_master does not harm anything, there's no stringent reason to delete the tag.
On the other side, this is similar to a mechanical edit and should be avoided or at least be discussed first.
Hey there. I spent many years curating the bus routes in my area. I completely disagree with this mass mechanical world wide looking change. There is nothing wrong with public_transport:version on the route master. It marks that all my work will be using that level of the transportation scheme. Please don't make a change like this again.

@all If anyone believe that this mechanical edit needs reverting please let the DWG know.
@Linda_Esperanto This is a mechanical edit and should have been discussed first. At the very least you owe the people asking you questions about it a reply.
@all Wenn jemand der Meinung ist, dass diese mechanische Bearbeitung zurückgesetzt werden muss, lass es die DWG wissen.
@ Linda_Esperanto Dies ist eine mechanische Bearbeitung und sollte zuerst besprochen werden. Zumindest schulden Sie den Leuten, die Ihnen Fragen dazu stellen, eine Antwort.
@SomeoneElse: Yes, I'm very sorry. That was imprudent of me. I will not do this again, but I'm not sure what to do now.
Thanks for your reply. I guess that for now we wait until one of the people whose data has been affected replies - do they think that this change should be reverted, or are they happy with things as they are?
OF course - if you think yourself that it should be reverted, please let us know.
Best Regards, Andy

the change should have been discussed but i'm ok and happy with it (it's indeed a mistake for me to have a tag on a route_master that doesn't concern the route_master).
if the revert is done because of "not following mecanical edit rules", I will propose a mecanical edit following the rules in the local communities where I am active.
