Hi Jochen, hi all
Sometimes one wants to tag for example a restaurant also being a pub.
Then a problem arises when one realizes that both are values of tag
There are two choices for dealing with this:
1. inserting two tag-value pairs ("amenity=restaurant" and "amenity=pub)
2. choosing one tag with two values separated by a semicolon (or
something else...:-<), so: "amenity=restaurant;pub"
The current editors JOSM and Potlatch2 seem to allow explicitly only
solution 2 ("amenity=restaurant;pub"). Unfortunately without control
about the delimiter (semicolon? comma?).
=> First question: Is this current "state of the art"?
=> Second question and feature request: Should'nt Taginfo split values
delimited with semicolon (and commas?) into two tag-value pairs?
