[talk-au] Added Laneways and Buildings

 If you tag a way highway=footway you're indicating that bicycles
can't use it. In OSM defaults that apply to a country seem to be
allowed (ie: drive on the left, roundabouts go clockwise),
unfortunately bicycle access is a state-by-state thing so we probably
should tag for it. 
You can go overboard with the tags...I had a genuine LOL moment the
other night when I discovered that someone had very carefully tagged
Bankstown City Plaza horse=no.

 I feel that those barriers are not to prevent cyclists but just to
slow them down on approach to a roadway for safety. In Qld, cyclists
are permitted to use footways, unless specifically signed otherwise,
so probably unnecessary to add the tag bicycle=yes. I often/sometimes
add the tag if it seems to me to be quite suitable for cyclists.Nev

 Hi Nev,
 Thanks for that. I wasn't sure how to tag them, but now you mention
that I'll update them. Should bicycle=yes be applied to any laneway
that is passable by bike, even if it does have those barriers? Thanks,

  Hi David, welcome back.I did notice this changeset yesterday
http://wwwopenstreetmap.org/changeset/36457888 [3] that mentions
cycle barriers but you did not add the tags for them to the paths.

  Hi all,
 It's been a while since I did anything for OSM. Moving to a new home
and decided to fill in a few missing walking laneways, buildings and
carparks in my area. They seem to have all validated properly, but I'd
be happy to hear some critique on what I've added. I did check a the
Australian Tagging Guide before upload.

 I wouldn't mind upgrading the map for the local shopping centre as
well so it shows internal layout and stores. Has that been done
anywhere? Thanks,
