Hi all,

moltonel3x on #OSM irc just noted something that we should also keep in 

There is a potential for confusion between "changeset comment" and 
"changeset comments"

I do not think it will affect us very much, but it is something we 
should keep in mind in case new mappers don't quite understand there is 
a difference and one we would very much like them to fill out and the 
other is optional.
