Ticket #1085 (closed defect: wontfix)
Mapnik layer: disused=yes not honoured
|Reported by:||a.t.chadwick@…||Owned by:||mapnik-team@…|
The mapnik layer renders some (maybe all) nodes and ways tagged with disused=yes normally. Essentially this bug is the Mapnik layer equivalent of #1079.
Both examples are physically present in the landscape (the canal rather dubiously), and so should be present in the OSM data. However they're useless for their stated purpose, and should not appear in a rendered map intended for the general public on the openstreetmap.org site.
The quickest fix for this would be to not render such nodes or ways at all on the OSM website: leave their rendering to more specialised sites.
