[Tagging] highway=residential road

I fixed one or two edits in Africa during the last days thinking those were simple typos,

but new mappers continued to use this tag, so I thought I should try to contact the

more experienced mappers to point out that there might be a recent change in the

instructions which was not good.

I'll contact the mappers as well.

I am on mobile, this is what I found:
8 objects

At least on this project
#hotosm-project-1465, #MissingMaps, #Mozambique, #Bing
Pretty standard instructions with references to wiki-highway_tag_africa

At least with this changeset
Best course in my opinion would be to contact directly mapper(s) via OSM changesets discussion to welcome and explain.

See you all

Hi all,

in the last days a few newby mappers started to map highway="residential road" .

They all contribute to #hotosm tasks, so it seems that the hints for these projects

suggest to use this tagging. Can anybody from HOT check this, please ?
