Hi, all:

I've seen there are hundreds of highways in Tanzania (about 1,700 at
this moment) that come from an old (most probably undocumented) bulk
import of Africover data, done back on 8-July-2009 [1]. Most of these
ways have an odd AUTO_ID key tag, that is probably an Africover
reference number.

My understanding is that this tag is most probably useless, and
undocumented too, so my idea would be to delete this tag from all
ways, unless there is a nice reason to keep them. Makes sense?

Cheers,

Rafael.
