Best map editing practice

Once you start editing a road, it changes from red (a new road) to the colour color of a road type (by default a white street) and will then appear on the next [[Timeline of updating process|update of the Live Map]] which goes out to all Waze users.
So it is '''less than helpful''' if you do an incomplete job. At least if the road is red, then someone else knows that it needs work. If it is white, perhaps even with a street name, then it may look correct. But Waze may not view it as navigable.
