Korea Streetsigns

Hi, I saw you made this change. I just saw that there was indeed a discussion on talk-ko about this, so it's completely okay, but you should also change the rest of the page so it's consistent with the change you were making. Also, is there a reason to keep name:ko=* if the the tag name=* is already used for the korean name? --Jgpacker (talk) 16:14, 13 October 2014 (UTC)

Hi Jgpacker! yes, if you can call this monologue a discussion. Unfortunately there seems very little participation in the mailinglist. It's a rather big change so I was almost expecting (provoking?) a revert. My intention was to reach someone who might oppose the change who is watching the wiki but not reading the mailinglist. To your question: this scheme is inspired by the Japanese naming scheme. Japan also saw dual names (japanese - English) and recently switched to Japanese in the name:-tag only. I think it is better for legacy purposes to keep the Korean in name and name:ko for the moment. --Golf (talk) 16:28, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
I see. And just to clarify: I'm not korean. I just reverted that one change because it made the page inconsistent, but I'm not against it. --Jgpacker (talk) 16:42, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
OK. I'll try to make it consistent now. --Golf (talk) 16:57, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
Is the following phrase correct (currently)?: This convention is used for most objects in the OSM data for Korea. --Jgpacker (talk) 17:19, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
