[Tagging] Accepted or rejected?

Dear all,

I think we deviated from the original question quite a bit. The point was
that the current number of votes proposed in the wiki for accepted/rejected
decision was self-contradicting. Even if there may be different opinions on
that, the very discussion shows that the situation is not clear.

I propose to clarify it by changing the recommended number of votes in
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features#Approved_or_rejected
from "...*8 unanimous approval votes* *or **15 total votes with a majority
approval...*"
to "*...8 or more **unanimous approval votes or 10 or more total votes with
more than 74 % approval...**".*
This will not change anything in terms of the ongoing discussion of *how* the
approval influences other things. So the discussion can continue. But we'd
introduce some mathematical logic in the process.

I don't think there is a procedure to vote on such proposals, so please
just give it +1 here if you agree. We change it when we have 8+ "plus ones"
if there are no significant objections to *this* change. Once again, please
note: we are not discussing the consequences of approval/rejection, we just
change the rule of thumb recommendation to a mathematically more sound one.

Cheers,
Kotya
