Hi,

I seek comments and thoughts on

-------------

Seasonal:

The seasonal tag in well established. I don't think there is much 
confusion with it.


---------------

Intermittent:

The intermittent tag continues to be confused with seasonal.

Possibly this is because some want to use it to indicate that a follow 
is both seasonal and intermittent?


-------------

Ephemeral:

There is also ephemeral being used with stream=ephemeral. This cannot be 
used with other water features e.g. lakes.

I think the tag ephemeral=yes could be used, other ideas for tagging are 
flow=ephemeral, water=ephemeral ...


-------------------

Combinations with seasonal?

Think I have raised this before but not come to any firm conclusion myself.

I think that tagging

seasonal=summer

intermittent= yes


leads to confusion. Is the summer flow intermittent? Or is ther regular 
summer flow with intermittent flow at other times of year?

It may be better to tag

seasonal:intermittent=summer


or

seasonal=summer

seasonal:intermittent=winter;autumn;spring
