Simple Menu - Set building = yes when assigning Building > Place of Worship

Reported by: DavidF Owned by: potlatch-dev@…

Component: potlatch2 Version:
Keywords: menu simple building Cc:


When using the simple menu to assign attributes to a way (area), if you set buildings > place of worship, the place of worship attribute is assigned, but it does not automatically set building = yes.

I realize that not all places of worship are buildings, but if place of worship is a sub-category of buildings on the menu, I believe that building = yes should be set.

IMHO the conflation between "building" and the institution that occupies it was a bit of a mistake. The situation where the boundary of a building is exactly the boundary of the church/restaurant/service station/whatever is actually quite rare.

The situation you're describing was my partial fix. Probably we should completely remove the category of "buildings", and have a separate feature for building=*.
