Add an empty "source" key box to each new element added to the db

[12:33] * Blackadder thinks potlatch and JOSM presets should perhaps has a default source key listed [12:39] <RichardF_work> Blackadder: I'm unsure as yet whether to have "automatically add source tag depending on background layer", or to shunt it into the changeset tagging (as with created_by) for API 0.6 [12:40] <Blackadder> RichardF_work: even with background layer, you might be editing with GPX as well <RichardF_work> Blackadder: very true [12:41] Blackadder: so maybe have it as a Magic Potlatch Keypress (pressing 'S' when NPE is visible automatically adds source=NPE, something like that) <Blackadder> just having an empty source key listed with each preset would suggest to mappers they add something [12:42] RichardF_work: or just a dropdown like all the other main preset values [12:43] <sward> The dropdown could default depending on background layer, but still allow you to change it. [12:46] <RichardF_work> hmmmm [12:47] maybe an option to always add a space for the source key, and another to have it default to the current background layer [12:48] <Blackadder> sounds good <RichardF_work> Blackadder: can you put it in trac so I don't forget, please :)

As of 0.10c pressing 'S' will automatically add the source tag for the current background.

Anything further will have to wait until transactions are implemented.
