Hi everybody,
I'm a scuba diver and when i goes somewhere to dive, i map the place in osm.
Previously, i've checked the wiki and saw the tag sport=diving [1], so i use it.
But later, i discovered the other, but still in "proposed" state, tag
: sport=scuba_diving [2].
When i compare the tags for sport=diving [3] and sport=scuba_diving
[4], scuba_diving is far more used
(~59 vs ~2200)
I've also discovered another tagging schem/guide  for scuba in Switzerland [5]

But it seems that we haven't anything "official" and spread...(
sport=scuba_diving is stuck in the process and look a bit messy)

So i've made another proposition :

It basically take ideas from the differents schemes, trying to reuse
existing tags and use what's currently in the db.

If the process is accepted i'll try to reach creators of sport=diving
to propose to change theres features to the new scheme....

Please add your comments here or on the talk page if you have one...
