Hi Martin,

disused:amenity=drinking_water is very good.

Is this documented as best practice for drinking fountains which are not
running without explanation?

How do you document an out of ourder tagged fountain which was
"amenity=fountain && drinking_water=yes" ? disused:drinking_water=yes ?

Best regards,
