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

In a town near where I live I've found that streets are individual lines that are not connected (eg 7 lines named 49th street that intersect) all with the exact same data except a differing geobase:uuid tag. Because of this I can't merge the lines together into one line (some of their tags have conflicting values message). What is the best way to go about merging the lines into one line? Should I delete that tag or just leave them as is?

I'm using the iD editor.

It is typically a good idea to provide a link to the area or objects under discussion.

In any case you can join the segments at their end nodes, which will enable routing a long the street. If there are no other differences on the segments you can delete the geobase tag (which is likely the indication of a import that should be investigated).

Yeah the roads are joined together but it was making it a pain to add more information or update them as they had to be done individually. It appears to be part of this import http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GeoBase_Import
