Changing terminology

Thanks for updating the Overpass QL page. One note though on terminology: if possible, please don't change existing terms like "union statement" to "union command". We're using this terminology everywhere, and changing that will only cause confusion. I'd like to ask to you to revert those changes pertaining such terminology changes. Thanks for your understanding. Mmd (talk) 18:00, 8 July 2018 (UTC)

Understood. I'll address the terminology changes I'm proposing on the talk page shortly. As someone coming into this with a good understanding of interpretive languages, but not knowing Overpass QL well, some of the choices in terminology are in my opinion very confusing, thus making the changes I have been, but opening that to discussion is definitely reasonable.

Thanks, that sounds like a plan. I know that some of the explanations on the page and some of the terms in use may be confusing, and even totally unexpected depending on your previous experience with other languages. As Roland (drolbr) has written most part of the documentation, he needs to provide his feedback on such changes. I could imagine that some might also have to be reflected in the source code.
