Drop created_by on changed elements during upload

Reported by: Ldp Owned by: richard@…
Priority: trivial Milestone:
Component: potlatch (flash editor) Version:
Keywords: drop created_by Cc:


Now that editor meta info has moved to changesets, a created_by on nodes/ways/relations is no longer necessary.

If Potlatch could silently drop the created_by tag on any element that has changed, before uploading, that would mean that the number of created_by tags would steadily dwindle, along with real edits.

It beats having someone (re)deploy a bot to strip created_by, as that will introduce lots of unnecessary edits and traffic.

I've committed this for ways in r17393. I believe Potlatch will do this for nodes automatically anyway, because amf_controller actually strips created_by from nodes before sending it to the client - just to speed up downloads!

Let me know of any feedback (once 1.2a is live) and then we can close this accordingly.
