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

I have a sidewalk along a street. The street is for cars and bicycles and the sidewalk is for pedestrians. Should I map the sidewalk separately from the street as a footpath or should I change the settings of the street to "pedestrian permitted"? Thank you.

It's probably worth having a read of the previous discussions here about this. It's also been done to death on the mailing lists too.

additionally, you can tag the road with sidewalk=left/right/both/none:
