Rewording unclassified ways

I saw your comment,

I agree, the definition of unclassified is ambiguous, especially for USA mappers like me. In regards to your comment, As I understand the unclassified usage, I understood 'properties' in "primarily for access to properties" to mean not residential properties, but exclusively businesses (small industrial buildings or warehouses for example). (I haven't mentioned this in any OSM talk, so my understanding may even be incorrect).

Hi, I saw your comment on (Consequences for software):

Rendering software may end up largely unchanged, but if special casings are applied to the sides of a road for a given tag, this will need to be restricted to just the left or right casing. User:Artemp assures me that this is possible for Mapnik, at least.
For now, could form the basis of a workaround. It already implements the "direction matters" thing, and it'd be less surprising that what we currently do for oneway arrows on the main site. Probably best suited to bitmap renderings and dashed lines; certainly not ideal. --achadwick 12:55, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Do you have any news about this issue? I am mapping cycleways using the cycleway:left=lane/track and cycleway:right=lane/track tags extensively, and I'm wondering if Mapnik is ever going to render that.

If not, do you know what the technical difficulties are? If the rendered was required to, say, blue-coloring the left edge of a road, is would there be some sort of intrinsic problem concerning how the deep rendering mechanics work?

I am a developer myself, so if there's a way to help, I would like to. (but I would need to get some start-up insight, since diving into a community-driven software project always has a very steep learning curve...) User:FFlint

In the toilet

I'm OK with dropping access=inquiry to move the toilet tagging along. I welcome you to create a followup proposal for your other ideas though... I can't solve all problems in one shot. Note that without access=inquiry I'll probably write notes like 'ask for a key at the front', or 'get a code from a waitress' -- 06:08, August 7, 2013‎ Brycenesbitt (manually added, please sign your comments using "--~~~~") --achadwick (talk)

Sure. Following up on your talk page. --achadwick (talk) 10:38, 7 August 2013 (UTC)

The "childcare" tag


I would like to reactivate the child-care tag. I'm amazed that it is not included in Features. Can you tell me how to reactivate the tag and any other information that I need. Ghanks.
