[OSM-talk] 112k Wikidata tags to add to OSM

I modified my code, adding more categories and extending the matching distance
for some objects. I started checking addr:housename, some buildings have this
tag but are missing the name tag.


There are now 112,278 matches found. I thought the extended range would help
reduce the number of mismatches, but I now have 2,393 mismatches.


I've got some ideas about how to fix some of the mismatches. Many of the
mismatches are villages represented by both a node and a relation, but the
relation isn't tagged with place=village, so my code can't tell it represents
the same thing. Maybe relations that represent villages should be tagged with
place=village. I'll could modify my code so it rejects nodes inside a way
or relation with the same name.

Example: Sachsendorf, Germany
