[OSM-talk] EuroVelo routes are out of date

EuroVelo routes are not in a great state in OSM. Many of them appear to have been armchaired years ago when routes were "in development", and not updated since to reflect the correct route.
A handful of examples:
EV3 should follow the new cycleway along the Oise, not the busy D932a
EV7 is completely wrong in OSM from the south of Prague to Nahoruby, including unrideable tracks and a suggestion that cyclists use a “ferry” that in reality is a tourist boat that only operates at weekends
EV8 now follows the Pirinexus alignment
…and there are lots more.
I realise people are preoccupied with tagwanking over relation tagging  and sorting  and editor snobbery , but there’s not a lot of point fretting over how pretty the tagging is on the route relation if the route is actually wrong in the first place.
Could I encourage people to check the EuroVelo routes in their home countries and update them where necessary?
