Some tags contains invisible nonprintable characters. See https://github.com/openstreetmap/iD/issues/5895 for an example.

Who

I, Mateusz Konieczny using my bot account

contact

message via OSM I will respond also to PMs to the bot account, though messaging my main account is preferable as I will get notifications in OSM editors.

English and Polish languages are preferable, for other I need to use an automatic translator.

What

Editing is restricted to tags that start or end with invisible character and after fixing it tag will be one of standard and recognized tags.

Why

Nonprintable characters are not wanted in tags and in tags where addition was accidental removal reduces confusion.

Numbers

Depends on how many new ones are added by editors.

How

  • Each changeset contains a single element or group of close elements to avoid edits spanning across large areas (it is impossible in cases where edited object itself spans very large area)
  • After every changeset bot sleeps for one minute

Changeset would be described and tagged with tags that mark it as automatic, provide link to documentation page etc

Discussion

Not necessary, fits "correcting obvious typos" that does not require discussion.

Repetition

May be repeated as new tags appear.
