I am glad you like it (we wrote it); however do note that it only details
the last person to touch each way, not all the historical editors who may
have contributed to the current map. For the purpose of attribution I
suggest people stick with the conventional general attribution to
'openstreetmap and contributors'. It is however very useful to see who is
active in an area and where they are working and when.
Btw, we have had a problem downstream with the data feed to our service last
night and as a result we have been running with data 24 hours out-of-date
today. We are assured that this problem was temporary and that a normal
service will be available from tomorrow am.
