[HOT] Problem with OSM HOT Tasks

I think its definitely a Tasking Manager issue. I would log an issue here




I think by default that label appears at the centroid of the polygon as well
as the nodes in the object (which is not too bad for squares). Maybe it just
needs to be at the centroid

Subject: [HOT] Problem with OSM HOT Tasks


Hi folks,


I'm looking for some technical advice here. We were doing a Missing Maps
mapping event here in Vancouver, Canada last week, and I noticed a strange
behaviour when mapping in the iD editor. When I choose a square that has
curved boundaries such as a boundary along a river, the OSM tasking manager
square shows the warning inside the task area.  The "Do not edit outside of
the coloured area" warning message should be displayed outside the task
area.  Here is a screen capture of the problem:


Also, here are some HOT task examples where the warning message is inside
the task area, where it shouldn't be (choose Validate and then start iD
editor to see these):




Does anyone know if I should submit this as an issue to the iD editor GitHub
repository, or is this a bug in HOT Tasking Manager?  When I try these tasks
in JOSM, JOSM is not showing the pink task boundaries.  Thanks.
