Thanks, great feedback,

The untagged ways and duplicated nodes are a common scenario, it's great
that there's such discoveries that can be made. Perhaps there could be a
documentation on these recent common mistakes on the wiki, so that the
local and new mappers can avoid and correct these.

JOSM pre-loaded USB drives are handy for any mapathon, will share all this
info with organisers of geoweek activities.
