Relation without type

KeepRight complains about relations that don't have a 'type' tag. But the NAPTAN mass-import includes many relationships which (by design) don't have a 'type' tag, and these false-positives risk drowning out actual bugs. --tms13 21:43, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

motorways connected directly

The 'motorways connected directly' test could be smarter:

Here, the motorway flows to/from a trunk route; the primary link road participating in the junction does not connect with the motorway, due to the directions of the one-way roads.--tms13 22:41, 23 November 2009 (UTC)

Russia coverage?

At the moment the European database doesn't include Russia, and the Asian one covers probably about 95% of the territory, BUT Moscow (the capital) and Saint-Petersburg (former capital, the second biggest city) are on the European part of the country which is not included. Is that part of Russia covered anywhere? If not, is it at least planned to? Mikado 17:12, 24 November 2009 (UTC)


Just a note - if you're looking for most of Florida, it's covered by the Central America data. --NE2 22:07, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

This way is tagged 'maxwidth=7'0"' where "0'0"" looks like "0'-0""

What is this trying to say? That it should be tagged with the dash instead, conflicting with Map Features/Units? --Tko 19:41, 13 August 2010 (BST)

fence:type (and probably similar tags)

This way is tagged 'fence:type=split_rail' where "fence" looks like "fenced". See for fence attributes. I guess this problem also exists with similar tags. --Scai 20:08, 13 August 2010 (BST)


Please mark a node with amenity=recycling but without an specification like recycling:clothes=* or recycling:glass=*. Without this the node is quite useless.--Zuse 10:07, 18 April 2011 (BST)

Dev info

Links to all the Keep Right#Development information and code on sourceforge seem to be broken at the moment with python error. Anyone know who to ask about this? -- Harry Wood 23:27, 2 September 2012 (BST)

OK fixed. I got hold of the author Harald Kleiner and updated Keep Right#Development -- Harry Wood 00:35, 4 September 2012 (BST)

Feature requests: unfinished constructions

I haven't found any tracker in to add a feature request for a new test. I'm adding it here now.

Construction of highways, railroads or residential areas doesn't last forever.

Keepright could detect osm features like construction=* or landuse=construction that haven't been changed for long time (maybe a year) and create a warning. Additionaly it could look at the end_date=* tag, whether the construction should have been finished and create an keepright error.

You can do a feature request for the upcoming keepright here: Poppei82 (talk) 13:20, 1 May 2014 (UTC)

Error pages = Help Pages?

Hi! The author of QAT-Script ( wants to set links to the wiki so that people are instructed on how to fix errors which are found by keepright. What came in my mind: we have sub-pages like: However there are only statistics which are - in my mind - unnecessary. What do you think about real instructions on how to fix those errors? I did this already in German language: What do you think about following suggestion: I will split this huge Users Guide into error-specific pages and include them into the German version of e. g. Then the QAT-Script and other apps will be able to link to error specific descriptions to help people fix them. Poppei82 (talk) 13:30, 1 May 2014 (UTC)
