The OSM planet file is sorted by ID, this makes processing it cumbersom because you need to load in all the ids to know what id is in what geographic location. it would be better to sort the file by geographic location. my idea was to use a geohash as a sorting mechanism. or to use some block system. in any case some sorting would be great.
n80: we'd need to keep track of which changesets had been applied and which not
and which are remapping or deletions and should definitely not be applie
when syncing between two OSM instances we need to be able to import just a single ChangeSet id or all the open ones from a user. We want to be able to see all the non imported ones for one area and review and accept them. We want to be able to also exclude individual ones that have been imported already. A simple web service / form interface could be used for this.
I was just warned for discussing this site on the mailing list. I cannot belive that it would go against some rules to talk about improving OSM. we should be able to discuss alternative ideas for OSM on the mailing list.
