Hi Jon,

Thanks for sending through the patch.  I've just taken a look at it.  Some

The WayNode class now has the new optional latitude and longitude fields
which makes sense.  Can you update the store method and (StoreReader,
StoreClassRegister) constructor to persist and load those parameters
again?  They're needed in case the pipeline does any functionality that
requires creating temp files such as sorting.

The class is now mutable which may cause problems in a multi-threaded
pipeline if task implementations are tempted to modify state on the fly.
Some of the Osmosis entity classes are mutable (an historical decision
which I regrettably allowed through), but they're protected from concurrent
modification through a somewhat elaborate read/write protection mechanism
(see CommonEntityData for details ...).  In this case, can we keep the
class immutable by adding those additional fields to an overloaded

Are these changes mastered somewhere else?  In other words, are these new
fields the same ones used by Osmium in its implementation?  I'm wondering
if we need to re-sync from the main OSM-binary project.  The osmosis
version is the same as that in https://github.com/scrosby/OSM-binary.  The
repo https://github.com/brettch/OSM-binary is a fork of that, and the
osmosis branch there *is* the same code as the osmosis-osm-binary directory
in the osmosis repo, just with some re-arranging to fit inside the Osmosis
structure and fit inside the Osmosis java package namespace.

*Jochen* (if you're reading), where does Osmium source its osmformat.proto
file from?

Long story short, rather than make changes directly to the file in Osmosis
and create a fork, should we apply them to upstream first and then re-sync
Osmosis with that?

Otherwise, the changes look relatively straightforward.  I don't have many
strong opinions on how to test it.  Osmosis doesn't have an amazing test
suite, it started out as a hacked together tool and grew into something
bigger than I planned.  I mostly rely on some basic end to end testing for
each task that creates files and reads then back again.  That's not
possible if you only have read support for the new file format.  We may
need to check in a small test file with a couple of ways created by Osmium.
