[Talk-transit] Feature Proposal - RFC - Validity of Route Relations

every year timetables of many public transport services in Europe change
on the second Saturday in December at 24:00. At this date lots of
changes are necessary to route relations – operators change, reference
numbers change or whole networks are restructured.

I would like to introduce a tag called timetable:valid_until=* which
indicates until which date a route is valid. If you update a route, you
usually know until when the corresponding timetable is valid.

For further information and the reasons why I did not choose a
corresponding start tag, see

Feedback is welcomed, especially if you have suggestions for the name of
the key.

I crosspost to the Tagging mailing list, the German mailing list
"Nahverkehr" and the German OSM forum because the German forum a is
place where people frequently discuss public transport mapping.


Best regards
