Tag to use for places where collaborative group of people propose to anyone to come and repair together (small electronic appliance, clothes, bicycle, small furniture...). Some of this places are called  Repair_café if the organizers sign relative commitment.

How to map

It's better to create a new node with tag repair=assisted_self_service because the schedules of the place (sometimes a café, sometimes not) are not the same as the one for the repairing workshop. So, even if the node already exists, it's better to create a separate node.

Add the additionnal tags to the node

tag description example
opening_hours=* Hours of the workshop Tu-Sa 10:00-20:00
