Thanks for taking care of this. Could I make a suggestion for future work
of this kind: add a note:redaction (or some similar key) with value
identifying the particular redaction that the object belongs to? At Max's
suggestion, I was doing Overpass queries with the set of way ID's
looking for ones that were still last modified by 'woodpeck_repair',
but I realize that if the ways had an identifiable tag, I could easily
hack up a reusable script to say, "give me the next object from
this redaction" - and remove the tag when the object is re-uploaded.
Simply having a tag like "note:redaction=chdr_20171008" on
the redacted way would do it.

I may be too much of an old woman here, worrying about identifying
objects from the wrong repair. It appears that for this particular
is a perfectly workable Overpass query for "tell me the work to do
in this particular bbox".

With that in hand, I can probably finish up New Jersey this week.
