Please comment on this proposal for additional properties and features
to be used in campsite, caravan site and camp pitch areas:


Main changes:

Deprecate booking=* (use reservation=* instead)
Deprecate bbq=* (use barbecue_grill=* instead).

The main issues:

reservation=* vs Booking=* - both tags have been used, but the tag
reservation=* is much more common and is a better known term in

bbq=yes vs barbecue_grill=yes - the tag bbq=yes/no matches the common
tag amenity=bbq, but it is somewhat ambiguous: does it mean there is a
grill there, or that you can bring your own? Both tags are about
equally common currently.

tents=<number> vs maxtents=* vs capacity:tents=* - there are 3 ways to
tag how many tents are permitted at a campground or camp pitch. The
last one is picked because it is the most widely used, and least
ambiguous, and it allows tents=yes/no to be simpler, without numbers
included as values.

amenity=dryer vs amenity=clothes_dryer - the first is more common, the
later appears to have been proposed for a clothes-line like outdoor
structure, rather than a mechanical dryer, in Russia:

This is the list of new wiki pages that would be created:


And these pages would get new values
Key:parking - add parking=yes/no
capacity:tents/caravans/static_caravans would be mentioned on Key:capacity=*
