Mechanical Edits/Mateusz Konieczny - bot account/retag sidewalk=none in Poland
Page content created as advised on Automated_Edits_code_of_conduct#Document_and_discuss_your_plans.
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.
Having multiple different but equivalent values is confusing and it should be avoided.
It causes no problem to people using presets but such tag fragmentation discourages mapping by directly editing tags what is unwanted.
Yes, editing objects will edit them, change date of last edit and add entry to history. Negative effects of that are minimal and not important.
On the other hand validation, spot checks and review of bot edits will result in fixing some other issues that would not be spotter otherwise and reduces changes of various mistakes if it would be done manually.
Large enough to make it useful to automate it.
state after a mechanical edit:
Changeset would be described and tagged with tags that mark it as automatic, provide link to discussion approving edit, include link promoting https://matkoniecz.github.io/OSM-wikipedia-tag-validator-reports/ etc
Discussed by Polish OSM community at https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=73885
Support initially checked and confirmed at Polish Discord channel
This is a reoccurring edit and may be made as soon as new tagging like this will appear. At this moment triggering new edit requires human intervention and review so exact schedule is not predictable and bot may stop running at any moment.

Please write at bot approval thread. Note that in case of opt-out exactly the same edit will be made manually for objects where bot opt-out was used.
