You can't currently, I'm afraid. This is part of what is known in the
OSM community as "wiki-like features", and they are a bit thin on the
ground. Another example would be finding out when a particular feature
was altered, or being able to give a reason as to why things were
We'll be heading in that direction, but there's no timescale for these
developments, and developers are thin on the ground too!
