What do you do when people don’t respond (or stop responding)?

Continuing the discussion from Changing RFC time for proposals including deprecation:

well, firstly you fork a topic, like explained here :smile:

No; then you go with https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposal_process - suggesting what you intend to do, how you plan to handle existing relating tags, etc. as mentioned here.

Then you follow that Proposal process as outlined in the wiki. If nobody has any conflict nor had improvements, you proceed to Voting stage, and then, after Voting period passes, you count to votes, and only then change proposal status to “approved” or “rejected”. If it was “approved”, then you proceed to do thing exactly as you outlined you will do them in the proposal (so you’d better put some thought into Proposal initially, or you’ll be stuck midway implementation, and would have to abandon that proposal midway and start whole chore from the beginning).

If that is exactly what you proposed in your Proposal and it was Approved; then yes.

That is also something you’ll need to propose how to handle in your Proposal.

Although, ATYL doesn’t work when your proposal intend to mess up with already existing tags. (it works fine if you’re just inventing new tag to describe something)
