this partly adresses my concerns. I still have the impression that it
would be beneficial to not use a mechanical edit, but to review the
This would allow to address other tagging issues as well. For example, I
noticed that the US consulate is tagged as relation and a building
inside this relation has the same tags.
Which element should have the tag in this case? The relation for the
complex, or one of the building which is probably the one where
customers are going to?
Another example of a consulate I added 7 years ago when there was no
name สถานกงสุลกิตติมศักดิ์ บังคลาเทศ
name:en Consulate-General Bangladesh
name:th สถานกงสุลกิตติมศักดิ์ บังคลาเทศ
I revisited and by looking at the name tag I was quite confident to
enhance the tagging to include a consulate_general. A mechanical edit
might have missed this.
With only a small number of objects affected, it should be easy for the
local community to manually fix it.
I will do so for the place I usually map. Should be cleaned up by tomorrow.
