Dear all,

The proposal to discourage amenity=swimming_pool has been approved:
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Discourage_amenity%3Dswimming_pool

The proposal received 36 approving votes, and 5 opposing votes (88%
support). I would like to thank everybody for voting.

I also opened a couple of requests at various OSM projects:
* I asked iD to stop rendering the old tag
(https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/2926)
*  I asked JOSM to add amenity=swimming_pool to the validator
(https://josm.openstreetmap.de/ticket/12431#ticket)
Of course it is up to these projects to decide what to do with these requests.

In any case, I would like to ask mappers to change the tag
amenity=swimming_pool into leisure=swimming_pool (Overpass Turbo:
