Hi all,

did I miss the
"consensus with the community, after long and detailed discussions"
here ?
https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/tagging/2017-October/033760.html

There are two guys which appear to me like religios bigot on an Inquisition,
but maybe the definitions in the wiki are just unclear / too interpretable :
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Rtfm

Please let me know what you think of this definition
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Any_tags_you_like#When_to_create_a_proposal
and whether it applies to the "motorcycle_friendly" tag.

Cheers,
Thilo
