Resending message to the list :-(

How do we fix it so that "Reply" goes to the list, not just the last poster?

Fair enough.

Referring to the OSM carto rendering? That's a good point. What else could

As Brendan mentioned, mark them in as fences, which will show a nice
straight line, although that could be called tagging for the renderer! :-)
It wouldn't be altogether wrong though, as they do form a barrier to
movement across the rows!

do features like vine rows belong in OSM? Does the difficulty in finding a

I guess that's a question of what do the end-users want to see about
"their" land? Most would probably be happy just to see it as a vineyard,
but if somebody wants extra detail, is it up to us to say "No"? I wouldn't
have said so, myself!
