Dear readers of OSM tagging and josm-dev lists,

after some discussion on german and italian mailing lists it has been
proposed to change the display values of sac_scale in JOSM's path template
to T1 ... T6 (see http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:sac_scale for
discussion in German).

Reasoning behind this proposed change was the hope to motivate the mapper to
read the wiki to get the meaning behind "T4" etc. instead of drawing quick
and wrong conclusions out of the rather misleading textual values of
"alpine_hiking" etc. So this would be shown in a similar way as tracktype
(grade1-5) in the track template.
Thus we hope to improve the quality of the sac_scale tag, which is in rather
bad condition in some areas.

Please comment if you object to this change JOSM's path template.

Second question to josm-dev: Am I right in thinking that this can be
completely done in launchpad (

Best regards,
