  • I apologize as I am not an OSM expert. I am aware that there are at least two sports broadly defined as "handball". One is team handball, played in a regular field ( The other handballs take different names in different countries (e.g.,, I think it would be interesting to capture these differences, so I'm asking if this could be accounted for (also to learn more about the OSM process).

    • It's something that recently came up with a boules/bowles proposal with a different name that may not be much more than a language translation. You could also propose use of type= to distinguse or propose a slightly differing sport=value, or maybe the type on a regular field can be ignored and never tagged. I don't have a clue what handball is so I have no opinion on this proposal. - LastGrape 11:28, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
    • I'd vote for specifying that this is the sport you describe as team handball, while the other one could be referred to as five (which wikipedia says it is a variation of). Bobkare 17:19, 10 January 2008 (UTC)
  • i think that they're different enough to warrant separate tags, as with soccer, aussie rules, rugby leage, etc, etc. Myfanwy 02:49, 4 February 2008 (UTC)
