#4126 closed defect (fixed)

Old values are not purged from taginfo

Component: taginfo Version:
Keywords: update value Cc:


About two months ago, I did a major cleanup of values of the "bridge" key in OSM (e.g., people misusing the "bridge" key to insert a value that should go in "name" or "bridge_name".) However, most of those values continue to appear in Taginfo listings, even though an XAPI query shows that no features still contain them. Others disappear from Taginfo within a relatively short time. See the less common values at and see how many of them return results when queried with XAPI.

Well, about 35 of them disappeared over the past day or so (as I said, they've been lingering for about 2 months), but some of the older ones are still hanging in there with the wrong numbers.

Taginfo uses Osmosis to update the planet each day from hourly diffs before it creates the statistics. There was some hickup in the planet-updating mechanism a while back and I suppose this is the reason for the problems. I re-started the updates from the last full planet dump and this at least fixes one case that I could find.

Can you give specific examples of cases that are still wrong? Ideally with the way ID?
