[mkgmap-dev] Warnings about motorway exits

From Carlos Dávila cdavilam at orangecorreo.es on Sat Jul 25 20:28:03 BST 2015

Warnings about motorway exits in mkgmap.log include cases were 
motorway_junction is placed on motorway_link ways. According to wiki [1] 
motorway_junction may be used not only on motorway, but on other ways 
with named or numbered junctions, such as [2]. IMHO mkgmap shouldn't 
throw a warning in those cases.
Regarding highway=services, if I recall right, it could be used time ago 
for exits that lead to service areas, but according to current wiki 
description [3] they are now only used for the place near the motorway 
where you can get the service (fuel, food, etc.) and then there's no 
need for them to be placed on a highway=* way. Warnings from places like 
[4] doesn't make much sense.
Could it be reviewed to avoid checking things that don't need to be fixed?
