Here's where things stand, definitely can use more attention, and improvements.


Eventually might be good to have a system to manage the crosswalks, and 
conversion into JOSM presets and formats for automatic conversion.

My best suggestion would be to start a Humanitarian Features page on the OSM 
wiki that copies the format of the Map Features page. I'd then collect as much 
of the existing discussion as you're willing to devote time to doing, and put it 
all on that page. In point of fact, I think this would be a tremendous service 
to HOT (unless anyone else feels otherwise and wants to pipe up).

Sean, are you volunteering? :-D
