Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Total confusion here.

  1. Potlatch2 offers as 1st choice (first icon) landuse=farm and landuse=farmland as 3rd choice
  2. The wiki redirects landuse=farmland to landuse=farm and gives no further explanation on landuse=farmland, picture only mentions landuse=farm

If concepts are the same, both should be maintained for backward compatibility. However, Potlatch2 should only offer the less ambiguous but commmonly accepted one, i.e. farmland, and DROP farm.

Not to mention, that for French speaking people, the farmyard is a ferme, a false friend of farm.

I have also read the Proposed features/farmland but conversation has been inactive for a while.

This question is marked "community wiki".
