[PATCH] Warn about head-to-head or back-to-back natural=coastline ways
An OSM newbie edited the coastline last weekend. He had deleted existing natural=coastline ways and replaced them with his own edits, and he forgot to connect the nodes.
I fixed that by extracting the natural=coastline ways from the finland.osm.pbf with Osmosis, loading it into JOSM and addressing the validator complaints.
All well and good, but the flooding did not cease today. I was puzzled. JOSM did not complain anything about this. Even the latest JOSM tested as of today does not complain anything about this.
Finally, it occurred to me that the new coastline sections were the wrong way around (land to the right, instead of land to the left).
Could JOSM Validator please issue a warning when it notices that a natural=coastline way is connected to a natural=coastline way that runs in the opposite direction?
