[talk-au] Discussion C: mapping on the street :: fixmes

Personally I add fixmes and notes fairly often when mapping at my computer
when I hit the limits of my survey, rather than out in the field. Notes to
explain why something isn't quite consistent with everything else or a way
that ends abruptly; and fixme for myself (or someone else if they desire)
to fix it up after I get back out there to survey it again.

I've mostly viewed fixme as something that would best show up in a mobile
app to someone physically in the location to map accurately, rather than
the other direction of pushing it to someone behind a desk. Like how
StreetComplete prompts to fill in missing information, Fix Me would allow
you to prompt someone physically to collect more information that isn't
just missing tagging.
