after careful considerations I drop that idea completely. Although I still
think it is a good idea I'm not willing to care for the resulting trouble
to be expected.
Beside the reaction from Karl and missing answers from Frederik also
another discussion with the author of NewTags preset is the reason. He
does not like the new possibilities the wiki style editing of presets
offers - which I can accept even if I don't understand it (NOTE: all
attachements to the Presets page have been converted to wiki style,
external links stay as they are).
So instead of following my advice to either use that new collaborative
system or simply add a link to the file hosted on his page and me deleting
the wiki we had a lengthy discussion with the result that he states "due
to security reasons it is no longer possible to offer that through JOSM
presets list". Well, this is total nonsense.
Sometimes I'm very discouraged to care for JOSM and I'm not sure if it is
really worth the effort anymore. Each and every time something new is
introduced or something is changed you get unacceptable comments and
flames. Sometimes this can get too much even for me.
