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

A parking have several small areas with gravel. How should these areas be marked? They are now mapped area=yes, surface=gravel. But OSMOSE doesn't like this.

Tagging a polygon as surface=gravel + area=yes expresses that this is a gravel-covered area without making any statement about the area's purpose. I see nothing wrong with that. OSMOSE isn't always right.

Ok. I have also sought the wiki and could not find anything which could inform of the purpose, which Osmose want.

Looks like it might be ok to split this in two, make them barrier=kerb and then do the surface on a multipolygon. Assuming that the white outlines actually are kerbs.

Just ignore Osmose here. Of all of the QA sites that I'm aware of it probably has the highest false positive rate.

To be fair, Osmose itself says "In no case Osmose-QA should provide you the absolute right way to map, always keep a critical eye"
