This is great!  Happy to see that people are recognizing that some work (but not a lot) needs to happen before we change a tag from one thing to another thing.

I’ve created a repo where we can track these things:
https://github.com/osmlab/osm-tagging <https://github.com/osmlab/osm-tagging>

I’ll start opening issues for the things we’ve agreed to and I’ll add an issue template so that people can check off the items once they are done and close the issue once all the steps are completed.  

The repo can link back to the relevant discussion(s) on the tagging mailing list.  I think we should continue to make sure that every change is raised on the tagging mailing list for WWIC [1] reasons.

Eventually this repo may also contain code and tools for gaining better insights into tagging and making changes to tags.

Thanks Bryan
