Hi all,
The relation:waterway wiki page
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:waterway> recommends using
"distance" tag for "the total length of river in km". Was there any
discussion of this choice?
It seems a bit incorrect and confusing, because "distance" is more suitable
for routes as discribed on its proper page
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:distance>. The existing "length"
tag would fit better, woudn't it?
