I'm now starting to work on the Potlach2 presets, listing what they are
called & comparing it to JOSM and the wiki...

JOSM has
Shops > Food > Seafood
for shop=seafood

Potlatch2 has
Shopping > Fishmonger
for shop=fishmonger

The Wiki has
"A shop selling fish/seafood."


Alternative names during the discussion on the tagging mailinglist were:

   - shop <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:shop>=fish - To be easily
   confused with pet shops selling pet fish or fast_food shops selling prepared
   - shop <http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:shop>=fishmonger - Being
   understood by communities where the English is close to british English,
   north american and non-native speakers had problems understanding or found
   it to sound outdated.

"Seafood" seems to be the term that is best understood (by the users of the
mailing list) to be a shop according to the definition of this proposal.

and also, 'fishmonger' does not have it's own wiki page.
Therefore, my recommendation is that Potlatch2 be changed to show 'seafood'
But of course, many wiki-trolls will disagree (with a 100 comment talking in
circles).... so i'll just leave it in my chart and highlight it in red.  The
Bug #6 is on my list.
