> I increased way and relation listings back to 20 items. Can we agree node lists are usually pretty useless and leave them at 10 items? 

This would be a change from current behaviour, but I wonder about flipping the order to be relations, ways, nodes. I find that's the order of approximate usefulness when trying to see what the user did.

> Both opened and created times are available by hovering the cursor on the time, that's what that dotted border underneath represents.

Ah. With the way they line up, this makes it easier to compare them to see how long a changeset was open

> We've purposefully avoided large amounts of text in the headers

Makes sense

> Not sure what else we could display to make the changeset page more useful. Specifically what information is missing and how should we display it?

For substantial improvements in usefulness we'd need something better for visualization like OWL, but that's out of scope here.

One feature I do note is missing is to call your editor with the bbox of the changeset. The difference between this and the edit button on the top doesn't matter for iD, but does matter for remote control.

It still feels to me like the emphasis is on the bbox, with about 80% of the width given to the map displaying it, which is something I spend less time looking at when using a /browse/changeset/# page
