#2843 new enhancement

The API should reject attempts to truncate ways to a single node

Reported by: Wynndale Owned by: rails-dev@…
Priority: trivial Milestone: Wishlist
Component: api Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Ways consisting of only one node are not useful. Edits creating or truncating to such ways are either ill thought out mapping or editor bugs. In either case mappers would be better off being told that an edit has gone wrong instead of putting a doubtful way into the database, possibly replacing something useful. In particular, it would have caught my recent JOSM edits that curtailed ways to the edge of planet dumps without me realising it.
