I stumbled upon Changeset: 142120572 | OpenStreetMap while checking updates in my local area. The changeset contains a link to Automated edits/Local-Mapper - OpenStreetMap Wiki. This was supposedly discussed in a Slack thread. In my opinion, that is not quite enough to warrant a mass edit of this magnitude. I didn’t count but this is many thousands of map changes all over the United States. Opinions?
My personal opinion is that mass edits should be discussed in a more open and less ephemeral medium than Slack, at the very least. And they should have used a dedicated account.
