Description

Not sure if that's a bug or feature...

http://www.openstreetmap.org/api/0.6/way/130525672/history

Seems kind of wasteful to create a history record in case identical object is uploaded.

Yes, the observation is correct. We expect the editors to be smart enough to avoid uploading the same version again. Doing this in the API would introduce additional complexity and performance penalty for a niche case. Closing here.
