I noticed that the default imposm template for importing OSM data into postgis lacks some types of features (powerlines for example). I was searching the web to find a complete schema import template (in the form of python classes, like the default template) but couldn't find any, does it exist? It would be much easier to have a complete template, then remove what you dont need.

I have the same problem at the moment and it seems, that imposm isn't able to import routes until now. – leak_my_brain Jan 31 '13 at 13:10
It can, but you need to add some python classes yourself (in my case for powerlines) – U2ros Jan 31 '13 at 13:13
Can you give an example for that? – leak_my_brain Jun 4 '13 at 11:36
