Difference with Currency recommendations


The wiki page gives this syntax: currency:XXX=yes. Why the local money use currency:XLT=LOCM instead of currency:XLT-LOCM=yes? Where does “XLT” code come from?

In fact, I ask myself about the origins of your draft? Is there any place where any discussions have happened?

As an OSM beginner, I don’t know the community habits and recommendations. confused I hope you can help me. smile --Pols12 (talk) 18:02, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

  • currency:XLT=* allows a generic request and gives this map.
  • XLT comes from the ISO 4217 syntax for special currencies (X, e.g. XBT for the Bitcoin), with a two letters LT for local currencies ( decided by me ! but seems not already in use)
  • You are welcome to talk here.. When I started this page it was not ready for a draft. If you want to start a draft page, you are welcome !

Many thanks for your answer!
I think the following expression can be used to work with the syntax recommanded on the wiki: ~"currency:XLT-.*" ~ "yes". Maybe it is a too big server load; in this case we probably have to edit “Key:currency” to indicate the better syntax. What do you think about this?

For info, I started to use the tags proposed here to add local currencies in Belgium (User:Vucodil/Local_currencies_in_Belgium) --Vucodil (talk) 13:42, 11 November 2019 (UTC)
