I did this.

AFAIC these were typo edits and getting the whole database more consistent. I have done dozens of changes to fix typos worldwide over the past few weeks and it would be crazy to have lengthy discussions on each one for multiple countries in multiple communication channels. I understood that typos are ok to be undertaken but I will happily create a wiki page and/or another account for doing these.

For this case there I don't understand your basis for natural=meadow being correct. Landuse=meadow is the correct tag and IMHO Natural=scrub would be used if not kept.

Subject: [Talk-GB] Mass edits of landuse /natural tags

I notice that there have been a large number of mass edits of tags associated with either land cover or land use recently. Some may indeed be useful corrections, but altering all natural=meadow to landuse=meadow probably interferes with the intentions of the original mapper: meadows can be created and retained by entirely natural means.

Mass edits however well-intentioned should always be discussed in advance (preferably here, and on the wiki, & possibly on IRC).
