Just came across this:

http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=-32.651744&lon=115.86618&zoom=18

There is no way in the world that this is a mini roundabout.

Here is the nearmap imagery for it, I know it can't be used now for osm 
but using it here for reference:

http://www.nearmap.com/?ll=-32.650947,115.86584&z=17&t=k&nmd=20110705

Why do people not comply with this:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Australian_Tagging_Guidelines#Roundabouts

and read the wiki in regards to mini_roundabouts

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dmini_roundabout

and it's not tagged with clockwise=yes as required for Australia as well.

As to the source of this it would have to be survey, unless they are 
illegally using nearmap as a source as the secondary road and roundabout 
are new and not on bing imagery.  The secondary road and roundabout were 
under construction in Feb 2011 and completed by July 2011.

Cheers
