Hi all,

I do not want to see it "grayed out" - I'm not imposing something here - I think the first line of each pages is clear enough about what it is ...

About the way tags are described, it might be a good idea to use {{tag|natural|water}} format instead of natural=water; I have tools her that make it easy to eventually replace them but I dont think I will have the time this week!

Discussion has started fo some pages. Be patient, I'll reply soon

As of right now, the wiki is the most current source for the tagging details.

The GoogleDocs chart is not far behind. :-)

Because this is a NRCan vanvec product (directly from the source) any changes to the tagging structure needs to be directly with the talk-ca@ AND NRCan directly, so then the master conversion program can be edited.

So the wiki (although it can be edited) needs to be grayed out & a notice put at the top indicating this.

So, the biggest change is in the new tag 'natural=landform; landform=*' with a few subvalues.
I hope next week we can get that sorted out.

My aim for next week is to get a wiki link/proposal/voting page or detailed section available for ALL of the canvec features. This way, there wont be any surprises once the data is available :-)

This past week i continued work on wiki pages, (with some fierce editing of aboriginal lands as an example) so please join in & help make these wiki pages the best they can be.
