Looks fine to me. Perhaps the gate could be tagged as allowing /
restricting access to foot traffic only? Would just be a case of adding a

it's the wiki and it's fiddlers that are out of sync here.

Douglas, thanks for the links to the work you're doing - it looks
fantastic. Congratulations on fostering such a productive community.
Hopefully some Potlatch2 documentation will be available shortly as it
remains a legitimate and powerful editing tool that provides a low barrier
of entry. Is there anything that you've been teaching people that could be
placed in Google documents or similar? We could have a look at working on
something and submitting it to the existing OSM documentation.

All best, Joseph
