[mkgmap-dev] Trouble getting somemultipolygons to render inmkgmap

From Markus_g markus_g at bigpond.com on Sat Sep 25 06:05:23 BST 2010

I have tried the patch and have looked around Australia and I can't find any
problems. Seems to be a good addition as some multipolygons I have never
seen now appear in mapsource.

Charlies missing multipolygons also now appear.

I agree.
But the real world does not strictly follow this definition. 
Unfortunately very lots of mps are tagged with some non polygon tags and 
therefore I introduced the list of well known polygon tags. At least 
this was neccessary when I implemented the mp code.

You càn check yourself if it's now the time to remove this polygon list. 
I have attached a patch that follows your proposal. Just test it and let 
us know.
