to do a clarification and to avoid possible misunderstandings:
I'm happy that some persons spend a lot of effort on tools like Fabian did.
But from my personal point of view such tools could/should be provided 
by the foundation and therefor located within the "official OSM servers" 
with a very close link to the database.
I would be happy if the whole licence change to OBDL would be finished 
soon. But therefor in the current phase of reconciliation we need 
appropriate tools, in that special case fast tools who give a quick 
response on the work.

Once more: my original email was a question/request to the foundation 
and/or server admins. Please set up a (almost) realtime tool/server or 
support Fabian to get his server on "realtime mode".
Maybe further technical discussions should move to the dev list.

Best regards,
