I like that idea.

It would be cool if I could create an issue ticket (in a kind of a 
bugtracker) for a changeset and add a comment.

e.g. "accidental deletion of national cycling route (relation #123423)".
e.g. "broken import of 4500 unused nodes"

Someone else (a QA-team or the creator of the changeset) could fix the 
problem and close the issue ticket.

Views for the tickets:
* tickets of buggy changesets created by a user
* tickets opened by user
* list of all open tickets
* ...

Regards
Werner
