Make an area and mark it amenity=parking. I normally stick a parking
node on top as well for good measure :)

Find the place on http://dev.openstreetmap.org/~ojw/Browse/, go to zoom
level 12 and click request (bottom left) for manual update requests. The
informationhighway link posted elsewhere on the list recently also

somehow triggered on edits (sometimes) and also when people look at
outdated tiles on the slippy map.
