Press b in Potlatch to get the source tag added.

I have noticed that the status of some of the roads seem to have  
changed in Dumfries, so I think that local knowledge would be useful

I've noticed that there is an offset in Dumfries that is noticeable  
(the current data is based on GPS). I've not checked to see how  
widespread the problem is.
