cleanup competing tags measurement_station/monitoring_station

What

I plan to change the tagging of
man_made=measurement_station
to
man_made=monitoring_station
once the proposal of the latter is finished.
Numbers:

  • amount of measurement_stations in OSM:


  • amount of monitoring_stations in OSM:


Why

Since nearly the beginning of the two tagging variants have been in existence as two tags for one and the same thing. Both proposers of the tags agree that there should be a merging of them including a mechanical edit to unify the tagging. [1]

How

I'd download all man_made=measurement_station using Overpass API and change the tagging (both primary and secondary) by search and replace. The upload of the changed data I'd do in small chunks to check the data once more before upload and not to create a worldwide changeset
This would be a one time edit.
