Ok, then to get on with the import, we need to review the errors we
made with the Birmingham trail, and to get their views on the data
review process - was it a good idea to import things without the
highway=bus_stop tag, to get people to add them themselves?
I think the one other outstanding issue is how we should represent the
CUS stop types, at present in the 'active' tagging mode, they'll
appear as fully-fledged highway=bus_stop nodes, like every other bus
stop type, but with the addition of naptan:BusStopType=CUS, as (a
rather obscure) indicator to the fact they may not exist.
And then finally, we need to think about how we roll this out, county
at a time is the most obvious step, I think we order the import based
on requests on the transit list, followed by requests on talk-gb, with
a target date to import the rest by.
And on the technical front, I'm going to have to make sure that the
import tools I'm using are 0.6-capable.
I'm copying this over to the west-mids list so we can get their responses.
