The mailing lists and just going out and tagging seem to do more good than
calling convoluted proposals and voting sessions, so there's that.  For
best results, get a working model going first.  It's not like the database

This.  Also glad Mapillary is a thing; I'm starting to try to use this to
avoid having to rely so heavily on memory and searching geolocations on
