In OSMCha you can create a Filter, and in the Filter creation screen set a
polygon area you're interested in monitoring, and set Show Flagged to yes
and Reasons for Flagging to Review requested.

That should then only show changesets which requested a review. You can
also get an RSS feed for this if you use an RSS reader, otherwise maybe an
RSS to email service could work, or just check OSMCha every now and then.

I monitor the whole greater Sydney region and south coast and yes it does
take time, but I think it's worth it for the errors you catch. There are a
few others who also review with OSMCha, but we don't have a good way to
distribute the work to avoid duplication and minimize one's slipping
through the gaps.

In OSMCha you can mark as good or bad, but no way to say it's been reviewed
without explicitly saying good/bad.
