First "preview" version is here:
It shows stuff edited by the bot and stuff deleted by the bot.
Stuff edited by the bot is shown in its current geometry; stuff deleted
by the bot is shown with its old geometry (what else) and when clicked,
an excerpt of the deleted object's tags is shown. I assume that this
will draw criticism from some (who fear this is an invitation to
infringe a decliner's copyright) but I think it is important to be able
to get a glimpse of exactly *what* has been deleted so that you can
decide whether you want to go there and survey or whether that was an
un-important (or long replaced) detail.
Things that don't work yet:
* The "overview" layer is wrong, it actually shows the old WTFE overview
and not the bot-edited-or-deleted overview, so you have to zoom in to
* The various buttons on the right don't necessarily make sense (why
call Potlatch for a deleted node etc.)
* Updates aren't yet automated; the plan is to be relatively quick with
dropping stuff from the map as soon as it is edited by someone.
* It would be great to have a way of "clearing" the deleted-object
markers from the map.
Once these things are fixed, or at least a significant portion, I'll
make the view available on the non-debug OSMI, support tile access, and
announce more widely.
Comments are welcome.
