Add your local joint to the map
The last couple of weeks I've been busy implementing support for adding locations (POIs) to OpenStreetMap using GNOME Maps.
Otherwise (or after a successful log-in), the editing dialog on a new empty object will be shown:
It is currently a very limited set of object types that are supported. We will still want to keep it to a fixed set (rather than being able to edit the “raw” OSM tags) as we want to get localization support.
One thing that isn't currently yet implemented from the mockups is the recent types list, where recently used types should be available to choose from.
Another thing that I have been considering is allowing to edit the type of existing objects.
As the type concent that I have implemented here is a quite simplified variation of OSM´s free-form tag format, I had been a reluctant to this, but it might be feasable to allow it in case the object has just one of the various standard tags (amenity, shop, leisure, and so on) that we would base our type concept on set, and if that tag has a value that we have in our list (and thus can potentially show in a translated form, and even for the English or non-covered translation-case, not show lower-case-with-underscores form).
That was that for this time!
And 3.20 is starting to be visible on the horizon!
