OSM Postbox Collection Times Issues

Lists any UK postboxes with a collection_times tag whose value is not a simple Mo-Fr time, Mo-Fr and Sa times, or a Mo-Sa time. Not all the boxes listed will be errors, as some boxes (particularly meter boxes) may have non-standard collection times. In addition, the tool does a second check on each listed box to see if the value of the collection_times key fits the syntax defined in the wiki. For technical details of the tests performed, see below.

Found 149 boxes with non-standard values.

In other words, it comprises one or more semi-colon separated day-time blocks, where each block comprises one or more comma separated days or day-ranges, followed by one or more comma-separated times or the keword "off".
