[Talk-scotland] "Descriptive names" in Glasgow

Hi all,

A relatively new mapper has added a number of shared garden features 
with the name "Garden", e.g. http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/491169857 .

I'm guessing that the name "Garden" will need removing (description 
rather than name), but should anything else be changed (e.g. to 
landuse=grass) or perhaps removed entirely (because they don't reflect 
reality very well)?

I stumbled across these edits while checking something else with a DWG 
hat on, so wanted to mention it to the local community to see what 
should happen next.  If you need DWG help with anything either reply 
here or mail data at osmfoundation.org - if people are already planning to 
deal with it no problem; we'll let you get on with it!

Best Regards,

Andy, on behalf of OSM's Data Working Group.
