OK so I try a short summary of the discussion:
-We are all free to choose tag:key combinations but want to use
representative models for our ideas.
-Long time ago the feature list was founded to collect the most common
ones as guide/reference. It has to be only a selection and can never
cover everything. Nevertheless it's not a standard it just contains the
picked features for a problem with the highest coverage/aggreement
-To support the evolution of features we have the Proposed Features list
to bring your ideas into a form.
Feature ideas grew up by different sources: (local) mailinglists,
forums, wiki, usage in the wild).
Editors/Renders help a feature to get more popular.
The current situation seem to be:
-most common features in Map features list but there are differences in
-ideas were still created at different channels
-the proposal process is stagnant, there are very old proposals never
finished. Mostly no reviews, during votes no constructive critics. In
general the most mappers don't care about this process.
->A group of mappers disagreed
-some new features were added directly to the lists. Some with bigger
impact, some with less so there are upcoming discussions.
We talked a lot about possible consequences,... so let's just try a
How can we improve this process?
How can this be done independent from the communication media?
