Please add a link to particular OSMHV visualization (http://osmhv.openstreetmap.de/) at changeset browse pages (location http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/changeset/xyz).

I don't see why should bless this particular tool over and above the dozens of other community tools. I'm not aware of this particular tool having any particularly large level of popularity relative to other things - indeed I had never even heard of it before you opened this ticket.

Also as a general rule we try not to make anything on the website depend on things which are not hosted on our infrastructure.

Where is osmhv.openstreetmap.de hosted then? I thougt that is a part of main site as openstreetmap.de it is a part of http://trac.openstreetmap.org/browser/sites.

Why do you think openstreetmap.de is part of the main site? It isn't. I let them use our bug tracker as I let many other OSM related projects use it if they ask.

Broadly speaking anything hosted on our hardware will have an openstreetmap.org name, though there are a few openstreetmap.org things that are hosted on third party hardware.

FWIW I did try your tool and all I got, even with a small changeset, was java timeout errors.

Ehm, interesting reading, but a bit out of context I think. Why should you bless this particular tool? Because it is the only one providing (IMHO) nice graphical visualization of a changeset. At least the only one I could find.

Dont want to link outside? Why? You will rather not provide any too at all... This is not a development, this is a decay... if you really can not change your mind let us host OSMHV at osm.org.

I use the tool without any problems. I did not try a very havy changeset but normal things work for me.
