[OSM-dev] Augmented Diffs

Dear all,

Overpass API now offers Augmented Minute Diffs. The idea goes back to a talk 
of Matt Amos at SOTM 2010. These diffs allow e.g. to keep a geographically 
limited database extract up to date.

The details are documented in the wiki

However, these diffs address developer, not end users, because there is no 
software yet that can process these diffs. Therefore, I would be happy for 
comments and suggestions on this matter that arise when writing such a 
software. If there are good reasons to change the format, I'll try to do it 
only once, at the same time like the database reimport after the license 

Happy updating,
