Search by changeset metadata ? #189
I would like to search for changesets with specific metadata, but I don't find any information in the wiki.
Note: The use case is to search the numbers of changeset made by one hot task manager user (see hotosm/osm-tasking-manager2#538
Overpass API doesn't support queries on changeset metadata at this time, but you could use the main API instead. A bit of post processing (=filtering) on the result will be required, though.
Due to the limit of 100 changesets, you might have to create several requests with different timestamps as selection criteria or even use the bbox restriction.

@kolesar-andras : can you shed some more light on your use case?
Applying today's logic to query by user name, filtering by changeset (
Is this what you're expecting?
I would like to follow progress digitizing objects of a high resolution ortohoto. Searching objects for source tag matches only objects explicitly tagged with source, misses objects where changeset was tagged with source.
Best solution would be if an object does not have a source tag, overpass would substitute it with changeset source. In this case a simple search for source would return objects of both tagging scheme.
One more solution: searching for changeset:source would match source tag of the objects's changeset. In this case simple source search would match source tag of the object only.

I got here when looking for a way to find a changeset created by me using OpenMaps. Pascal Neis says there is one: http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?rmikke but it's most probably something accidental as I didn't even know it's possible to edit with OpenMaps.
So, there is no way to find it?
Could you also identify my change with editor reported as unknown? Or not

Regardless of OPAPI, even simplest form of this would be nice to have:
This tool is great, thanks for suggestion! But overpass API is integrated in simple-to-use JOSM dialogues and overpass-turbo, they are more easily reachable than suggested solution!
While, change-sets are not part of our data model (in the strict or "academic" sense) they are heavily utilized in workflows (I guess people asking for change-sets because they seen how it is powerful could be in JOSM Ctrl+F), but they are not familiar with true databases
Instead of re-writing overpass, we could adapt some other solution to mimic overpass syntax, but translate queries (to, say, PostgreSQL). At least one online solution would help our users (no need to setup their own servers, if they cannot do this).
