[PATCH] Change Preset Regarding pathes
I have attached a patch for the presets.xml which I would like to see included. It consists of three parts.
First move path to the upper section - the reason for this is that it is easily overlooked at the bottom, and thereby JOSM is a bit responsible for the highway/cycleway/footway dilemna we are facing in OSM.
Second - Put T1-T6 in front of the hiking trails.
The order of all items before a seperator is alpabetical - this creates a mess of the hiking scales. I have very often seen completely wrong classifications for the hiking scale - the wrong order might be part of it. Currently in many many regions the sac_scale is useless, because many people seem to use it without having a clue about the classification scheme behind. I would actually support to put al T1-T6 into one item and put a combo box for people to decide on the sac_scale. Changing the name would make the current behaviour however already a lot better.
Third - Create a new item which lists all attributes related to mtb trails. Mountainbikers are amongst the users creating most offroad content for OSM - but there has been no easy preset to use (and adding presets is too complicated for many users). I have about 600-2000 people downloading maps from my openmtbmap point org website everyday (about 300GB of traffic per day) - so the interest is there and this item would make it much easier for newcomers to add their favourite trails to OSM.
