I've been wondering about this - what else already exists? The RSS
links on the above page don't work for me, other than traces?
The API can show history. JOSM seems to have a "history" pane, which
last time I checked said something like "coming soon".
What other tools exist?
It seems to me that the API would currently allow one to build a feed
for "Recent Changes" in a given bounding box. (eg, daily, get_map,
grep changes since we last checked).
How that is represented would be harder, and it doesn't sound like the
most efficient use of database resources.
