2008-06-12 highway=incline_steep

overpass-turbo

incline=* 3 Any type of highway=* (primary, secondary, ...) may have inclined sections tagged separately, this does not create a new type of highway
2008-10-19 highway=stile

overpass-turbo

barrier=stile 4 Their "concept" better fits in this new key and highway gets a bit uncluttered.
2008-03-19 highway=unsurfaced

highway=track
5 Any highway classification can be unsurfaced.

2007-07-16 landuse=wood

overpass-turbo

8 Was intended to depend on whether the woodland/forest was "managed" or "primaeval", but also see Forest for more discussion about the problems here.
2007 highway=minor

overpass-turbo

highway=tertiary or highway=unclassified or highway=service or ... 9 Abandoned feature.
2008-03-19 waterway=mooring

2008-11-18 natural=marsh

overpass-turbo

tourism=museum 16 Tag historic=* should be used for historic items (and therefore not a museum).
2012 highway=ford

overpass-turbo

ford=* 17 "highway=ford" on a way doesn't allow tagging the highway itself (as e.g. "unclassified"). This doesn't apply to nodes; though, and renderers haven't quite caught up (ref openstreetmap-carto issue 267 and elsewhere) - don't automatically (or semi-automatically) change "ford" node tagging.
2012-11-28 color=*

overpass-turbo

colour=* 18 Usage of American form color probably mainly due to a bug in JOSM presets.

Here is a non-exhaustive list of deprecated features that you may include in your language's page "Deprecated features".

  • This table is filled in English by adding an item using this syntax:
{{Deprecated features/item
|date=Date
|dkey=Deprecated key | dvalue=Deprecated value (optional)
|dvalue_nolink=1 (only if the specified optional deprecated value has no separate "Tag:" page)
|suggestion=(simple list of replacement tags, or links to a page with details; no remarks here please)
|1=''N'' (an integer that identifies the translatable reason below)
|2={{{''N''|Reason/remarks in English}}}
}}
  • In order to include the table in your language's page, just use the following syntax:
{{Deprecated features
|date=... (Date)
|old_kv=... (Deprecated key/value)
|usage=... (Current usage)
|suggestion=... (Suggestion of replacement)
|reason=... (Reason)

|''N''=... (for each translated rationale)
}}

where the dots have to be replaced by your translation.

The numbers correspond to the column "N" in the table; when the same reason is given for several items, the same number should be used. (If you don't provide a translation for a number, the default English text will be displayed).

(Note that this text, as well as the above, won't be displayed in your language's page.)
