  • Split into smaller files by areas (municipalities/občine, cities/naselja)
  • Travis CI, with badges etc
  • add golang gometalinter golangci-lint DONE
  • use OSM conflator source code to prepare .osc files
  • create taginfo.json
  • add taginfo.json to taginfo-projects - PR#65 - DONE
  • Find & expand abbreviated names (eg "Moravci v Slov. goricah", "Pristava pri Polh. Gradcu"). Done, see overrides folder. (Q: Add a tag with original, shortened value, like short_name?)
  • Convert bilingual postcode names "Piran - Pirano" -> "Piran / Pirano", keeping "Šmarje - Sap", "Ljubljana - Šmartno"...
