Sorry, you did. I won't run this through a third month Draft/RFC/Voting cycle.

Mee too, but I payed respect to minority. :(

After a lot of discussions, majority of Russian mappers decided to ignore
the tracktype/trackgrade tags for now. The road condition is very dependant
on weather and ones chances to drive it strongly depend on vehicle that is
going to be used. So we decided that better no info on passability then
a erroneous one. Since most winter roads are laid in Russia, and also Russia
has the lowest ratio of paved roads per square klms in the world, then, I hope,
our opinion and habit of ignoring tracktype/trackgrade has weight.

r> tracktype:opening_hours=oct-apr.

Won't work for winter roads. That was told in discussions, and written
at the current version of the page.

Totus tuus, Glebius.
