Sorry for the spam. Sort of. :)


This is getting interesting. Side by side are now Mapnik, Osmarender,
Potlatch, JOSM, Kosmos, and the Map Features wiki page. It's rather
amusing, if a little depressing, seeing how little correlation there
is. In particular, documenting a tag in the wiki seems to have little
relationship with how well supported it is. The number of redlinks
(undocumented tags) is also somewhat alarming - we should get into the
practice of documenting every tag, regardless of whether it has any
"official" status.

Your comments welcome!
