one of the basic fundamental rules in OSM is that data should be objective
and not opinionated. We do not want restaurant reviews (or any other
personal review) or a generalized way of saying "suitable for cyclists"
(you can of course map the factors that say why it is suitable or not), and
a "friendly:*" tag could be misleading in this regard. I agree that there
are facts that can indicate a friendlyness or hostility towards a certain
group of people (e.g. motorcyclists, hikers, hunters, cyclists, ...), like
the signs, so I am not absolutely against a tag like this, but the
definition should make it clear that it is about objective, observable

You can subscribe to the mailing list getting all the messages as soon as
they are sent, or in a digest way (many messages together in one email)
after n messages (I think it's 10 or 15) have been sent to the list.
