I'm not sure, but I think potlatch overwrites the author. I don't know if
I'm the authro is question, but I used potlatch to do some minor clean of
north carlton a while ago (alignment of some roads, a couple of names added)
and my name ended up as the author for those streets in the osmarender

Don't know why, but potlatch does seem to do that (and there's no obvious
way of making it not do it that I can tell...)

Subject: [talk-au] [Talk-au] Change of Author?

Does anyone know why the author properties of openstreetmaps would change?
Large amounts of my many many hours of hard work is now credited to
another author  with no change to my original work. The "created_by"
tag has also changed from "JOSM" to "Potlatch alpha". Is this a bug
with Potlatch or a deliberate action by the user?
