[OSM-talk] Remove validation rule asking to add highway=footway to railway/public_transport=platform

I cant see how a new team of developers would help - they would be operating
under the same rules (which I suspect are pretty vague) as all the current
developers. Who at the moment dictates which editors can be used at osm.org?
If they don't like ID, they can get it turned off.

 

If the ID editor is the most popular it's probably for a good reason - it's
easy to use for newbies and intermediate mappers.

 

If the tags are wrong, ambiguous, duplicated or poorly defined then I
suggest fix the tagging system first so it's clear for all developers.

 

Cheers - Phil

Also:

 

Have a new team of developers code from the codebase of iD.

 

Write a new online editor from scratch.

 

Abandon online editing and tell everyone to use an offline editor.
