Description

It would be nice to have a layer that shows the known issues of a certain area [1]:

Change History

Besides the fact that it doesn't seem to be widely used, the concept somewhat evades me.

If someone proficient enough to use the tool discover a mistake, why not just switch to potlach and correct it?

Yes, it is certainly not in the core osm toolkit. As for the concept, it allows people to point out mistakes in the map without even owning an account. And the step of identifiy and describing a problem is decoupled from fixing it.

Replying to dantje:

The canonical location is no longer at appspot.com; it is  http://openstreetbugs.schokokeks.org See also the OSM Wiki:  http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OpenStreetBugs

If not 'widely', at least 'intensively' in those areas (such as much of the UK) where it is used. I for one would find it useful.

I've been thinking of other similar layers. In particular, it would be nice to be able to search geograph.org.uk for nearby relevant photographs (UK and Ireland only) and I'm thinking of implementing that. It would be nice to keep the approach aligned; also the user interface (perhaps move Edit/Find? across to a new "Search" menu and extend that?)

P.S. yes, I would find it useful to have OSB and KeepRight? visible in Merkaartor, so +1 here. :-)

Implemented (no Add/Change? but is it the point to add this to merkaartor?)
