Following the Automated Edits code of conduct guideline to “Document and discuss your plans”, I’m letting everyone know that given the 2012 deprecation of the place_name tag, I’m planning to remove all place_name* tags in Israel.
The place_name* tag will be used to set the equivalent name* tag, if such a tag does not exist. For example, the name tag will be taken from the place_name tag , name:en from place_name:en, etc. Where applicable, the Hebrew place name will be used for the name tag.
Contradictions between a place_name* tag and its corresponding name* tag will be resolved manually.
The plan is to perform the change after 25-Dec-2016.
For the current use of place_name* tags in Israel, please see this Overpass Turbo query.
