[Talk-us] Please revert my epic fail changeset

I'm still having trouble figuring out how to do the things I want in
JOSM.  It works in some strange ways.  Anyway, I started uploading a
rather significant changeset before I realized that JOSM considered
everything I was working on as "new" objects and were being uploaded
as such.  I nearly duplicated half the roads in Toledo.  Fortunately,
I realized my mistake and unplugged a network device before much of
the upload was completed.  Still, over 400 nodes were uploaded, all of
which certainly duplicate existing nodes.  A revert will be quite
helpful on <http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/3854124>.

I was using JOSM so I could edit while being able to see the "big
picture" (not practical in Potlatch) but it's looking like I'm not
going to be able to get JOSM to actually upload anything properly now.
 Still, I can use my locally saved .osm file as a blueprint for
Potlatch editing now.  (And that will be easier when the duplicate
nodes in tonight's "epic fail" changeset are gone.)
