Andrew, how do you specify a polygon, always wanted to do that but I
thought OSMCha only supports a bbox?

RSS feed and RSS to email service (Feedrabbit is a side project of mine) is
exactly what I do.

I don't follow an area anywhere near that big here but I definitely find

to review and other states while you are waiting on fixes would help.
