Hi,

A discussion on French list seems to enlight a spelling problem about
telecom=central_office tag.

Currently, buildings hosting telecom local loops connection nodes are
tagged with telecom=central_office, mainly in France according to taginfo
http://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/telecom#map

Such connection nodes may concern copper local loops and/or optical local
loops.
Is "Central Office" the right english term for all kind of nodes ?
Can we write "telecom" without and ending *s* ?

Warn : both optical and copper may be hosted in the same building.

According to this page :
http://books.google.fr/books?id=wBBt_sK0WHYC&pg=PA109&lpg=PA109&dq=%22optical+connection+node%22&source=bl&ots=cJHuD4Qax9&sig=kE-RhjA3wXq7jdn_O6kTgxECND0&hl=fr&sa=X&ei=nUCNUoa4MMqV0QWAuoD4Ag&ved=0CF4Q6AEwBQ#v=onepage&q=%22optical%20connection%20node%22&f=false

Subscriber Connection Node = Building where copper customers are connected
to network.
Optical Connection Node = Building where domestic optical customers are
connected to network.


Can a native english speaking member can help us with this issue ?

Then, telecom=central_office is only used < 1500 times, refine it if
necessarily would be pretty easy.


Thank you in advance, cheers.
