It wasn't documented on the wiki.
It is in the mailing list archives.

Obviously the people in the UK are much better behaved drivers, going in 
circles round little painted circles on the road.

Drivers here need a big thing that goes bump or rips the undercarriage off 
their expensive Italian coupe before they drive around it.

My current version of mapping

Those little concrete circles 
mini_roundabout
direction=clockwise

the medium size I draw out if one or more of the roads is dual carriageway, 
because it is easier to draw it.
Put in four or eight points evenly, ask josm to make a circle of them and then 
add other required points, check the direction of the segments.

big roundabouts (South Hay, Goolgowi) which are big enough for a road train to 
drive round comfortably need lots of points, and on and off ramps
