[OSM-talk] Help! Changeset reverted without explanation

I think I know the primary account (Not many mappers in the US!).   He'll 
respond via the contact, but let me know if he doesn't.

This is always a risk when making mass edits that don't agree with the Wiki 
(relation ref).   I don't know if that's the reason for revert.  It would 
have been best to get an agreement and update the Wiki before changing the 
ref format.
