Thanks for that. I've added a very brief entry to this section of the 
wiki describing validating


Your blog post looks is very informative, but I'm not sure what else I 
should add to the wiki - I'm well out of my depth with what you are 
describing and doing, but what you have described and done could be 
extremely useful. Please feel free to expand on the very brief wiki entry.

I've been tagging the round thatched buildings used as residences in 
many parts of the Ebola affected areas as 'building=hut'. Until your 
email I had assumed that building=hut was listed in the wiki's for the 
round buildings, but I've just had a quick check and it is not - I'll do 
a separate message to the mailing list on this subject.

Thanks again for your work on this.
