Deletion policy - Voting

Dear fellow mappers,

We would like to invite you to voting in the case of the proposed Deletion policy for wiki pages and files [1].

As you might have noticed, there were conflicts based on requests to delete wiki pages and especially drafts of proposals. One of the arguments in favour of deletion was avoiding confusion and clutter. The other side argued basically that they wanted to keep everything as all of the fragments ensemble OpenStreetMap’s history. Based on the input of several contributors, we drafted a deletion policy over the span of two and a half months.

Among other things, the policy proposes a centralised discussion page for all cases which are not mentioned explicitly.

Kind regards,
