[HOT] HOT mapping with iD made a little bit smoother

Hi all,

A tiny little technical update for you. The team who create the iD
editor kindly added my feature request which means that the HOT
Tasking Manager can now "pre-fill" the changeset comment in the iD
editor. So no need to copy and paste, it should be there when you
click through from the Tasking Manager.

What does this mean? It means that in future, HOT mappers using iD
will not need any reminding about what to put in the comment box! (I
noticed this as an issue for newcomers to remember.) Easier mapping,
easier training, more consistent changeset comments.

Thanks everyone who helped put this through.


(P.S. There is one little technical niggle to resolve - if the comment
contains an equals sign then the pre-fill doesn't work on firefox.
Hopefully sorted soon.)
