Properties group

Hi, following this modification, you moved usage=irrigation in properties group. Aren't all OSM keys properties? I don't get what sense it makes instead of waterways.
Could you elaborate a bit more please? Fanfouer (talk) 20:56, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

A canal is a kind of waterway. "Usage" is not a kind of waterway, it is what it is used for. Something B (talk) 21:06, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Purpose of groups is not to state a feature is something or not but a feature relates to something. It's like wiki categories grouping both features and attributes pages.
I don't get what value properties group can have. Fanfouer (talk) 21:53, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
Strictly speaking, usage=irrigation is not limited to waterways. It can also apply to pipelines and reservoirs. Something B (talk) 21:59, 1 March 2021 (UTC)
We'll possibily have to rename waterways category to Water management and a waterway could actually go through a pipeline with waterway=pressurised. Currently, category's page includes reservoir and many marine features Fanfouer (talk) 00:03, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
Good idea! Something B (talk) 00:07, 2 March 2021 (UTC)


Hi SomethingB,

I working in the sewage treatment industry and got some questions on your proposal.

May I contact you through e-mail?

Best wishes,

Hi, @Belmondo! This is not really proposal, rather documenting the tag that is being used. @ZeLonewolf and @ 501ghost are currently working on the proposal. See Proposed_features/Clarifiers_and_Oxidation_Ditches Something B (talk) 21:53, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

Chat with us

Are you up on OSM World Discord or OSM US Slack? --ZeLonewolf (talk) 00:23, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi, @User:ZeLonewolf! No, I don't use them. But if it is necessary, then I can; however, the easiest way to contact me is to send me a private message via (my username in OSM and Wiki is the same). I also read the OSM forum and sometimes write there. Something B (talk) 21:16, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
Oh ok no worries. Based on the edits your were making, I thought you might have been one of the folks in the discussions on the OSM World Discord. Just trying to figure out who's who. Some things are just easier to work out in chat :) --ZeLonewolf (talk) 21:20, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
