[OSM-dev] uploading GPX via the API

Dear All,

Has the GPX upload method in the API been disabled in 0.6? Shame if it has, as personally I found it convenient to upload GPX files in JOSM at the touch of a button using the DirectUpload plugin. Having looked at the specs for 0.5 and 0.6 versions of the API, it seems the POST method for a GPX file has been disabled, but I can't find anything to suggest why. Possibly because it was rather too easy to upload duplicate copies of the same GPX file, but could this not be controlled in another way?

Any ideas?
