[OSM-talk] No Changeset Comments from iD

IMHO commit comments are very useful if done right.
Some comments are as useless as no comment (e.g. "changes", "more
changes" and so on), but asking/reminding/triggering users to give a
comment at least increases the ratio of given comments; and hopefully
that could increas the ratio of useful comments, too.
