#21911 new enhancement

Add support for boundary=forest and boundary=forest_compartment

Hello, there!

A recently approved proposal created the boundary=forest tag and standardized boundary=forest_compartment. The first tag is brand new, but the second one is already used some thousands of times. Until now, boundary=forest_compartment lacked widespread support likely because of the concurrent boundary=forestry_compartment tag, but this concurrent tag has been deprecated by the same proposal.

boundary=forest_compartment could be supported alone, but it is now part of a forest-related tagging scheme, as a subdivision of boundary=forest entities, so it would be better to add support of the two approved tags instead of just one, even if boundary=forest just starts to be used.

By the way, it would be great, should this feature request be granted, to have JOSM warn about boundary=forestry_compartment being deprecated and ask for its replacement with boundary=forest_compartment.

Feel free to ask additional details (I'm the author of the proposal creating this tagging scheme).

Kind regards.
