So you've also updated every user of mkgmap who uses a customised style
file too? That should add a few to the "20 or so" (or whatever number
were mentioned before). Each change is of the same order as the one
that you've described above, but when multiplied by the number of users
affected it's much, much greater.
The worst of it is there was no warning - none of the stuff here seems
to have been followed:
We've seen recently how people responding to disasters have used OSM
data on handheld devices - someone right now could quite possibly be
using such a map to try and deal with, say, the floods in Pakistan. If
that map is suddenly missing hospitals what are they to do?
