Yesterday Wiki user Cmuelle8
(https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/User:Cmuelle8) changed a number of
Wiki pages with the following comment :(opposite_lane is a value for
unaffixed legacy cycleway=* tags (!!), it has no meaning with
cycleway:left, cycleway:right and cycleway:both and must not be used in
combination; use *:oneway=* which is indpendent of left/right hand
The pages affected are
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bicycle, as well as the french
version of the former. There might be others.
Cmuelle introduces rather complex combinations of tags such as
cycleway:left=lane + cycleway:left:oneway=-1, that should in his view be
used instead of cycleway:left=opposite_lane.
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:oneway%3Dyes> Does anyone on
this list know whether this change has been discussed anywhere, and
where and when it has been decided that cycleway=opposite_lane is a
"legacy tag" ? If so please point me at some references.
I cannot find any recent discussion about this and am wondering whether
this wiki change is an attempt to force a change in the model with no
discussion with the community...
