[OSM-talk] magical road detector to play with

Thanks everyone for the feedback so far we have these issues we will hopefully be fixing and getting propped soon:

- generator=CGIMap 0.0.2 will be removed.
- way version will be removed
- visibility tag will be removed.
- user, uid will be removed
- highway tag will be removed.

Am I missing any changes?

I am also wondering if we should switch to osm change as the enclosing tag although the idea is not to give someone something they submit right to OSM. In our prototypes we have been adding the detected ways onto the map for the user to edit and approve. I generate new id's for the ones passed back to me so they don't conflict with current changes the user has already made.

Small details:

in "<way id="-29" user="" uid="1950453003" visible="flase" version="5">" (just clicking "Go" on http://magicshop.cloudapp.net/Default.aspx)

1) "false" is misspelled to "flase"
2) Why "false" in the first place?
3) What/who/why is the uid mentioned?
4) same about version (hardcoded to 5?)

It will be experimentally enabled in Merkaartor soon.
