Sounds good.

For the avoidance of doubt, is the format of the planet file changing  
or does this just affect the API between editors and the DB?

Is there anything that we must change in OSM Mapper (the product) to  
accommodate the new API? Is there anything we 'could' change in OSM  
Mapper to take advantage of new content in the planet file? In  
particular will the text associated with the changeset be available in  
the planet file. Finally - if the planet file is changing - are there  
sample planet files with this additional information available for us  
to test with OSM Mapper prior to the switch-over.

Thanks,



Peter
