[HOT] Monitoring changesets that occurs only within a specific bounding box

Dear list,

In Jordan, Refugee camps base map  are maintained through OSM.
Zaatari is an example: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=15/32.2933/36.3191
and we are about to open a new camp here:
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=14/31.9018/36.5787

One recurrent question is about monitoring the changesets in order to avoid
sabotage. I look at
https://www.openstreetmap.org/history#map=15/32.2933/36.3266 but it gives
me changesets that apply both within and beyond my bounding box. Filtering
them manually is time consuming...

Based on the wiki here (
http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/API_v0.6#Query:_GET_.2Fapi.2F0.6.2Fchangesets),
I looked at the API to do so.
http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/changesets works but the 2 detailed
one below do not provide results:
http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/changesets/GET?bbox=32.266596,36.288786,32.278352,36.274366
http://api.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/changesets/bbox=32.266596,36.288786,32.278352,36.274366

Any hints on how to monitor changes that occurs only within the extend of a
specific bbox ?

Thanks a lot,
Edouard
