Description (last modified by Don-vip)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

First, I would very appreciated that create this great software !

I downloaded a osm file from:
however, when I tried to open it, JOSM reported:
Illegal value for attribute 'changeset'. Got 0. (at line 4, column 115). 327 bytes have been read

I traced into the code, it's fired in: function: readCommon() line: 587

            if (current.getChangesetId() <= 0) {
                if (current.isNew()) {
                    // for a new primitive we just log a warning
          "Illegal value for attribute ''changeset'' on new object {1}. Got {0}. Resetting to 0.",
                            v, current.getUniqueId()));
                else {
                    // for an existing primitive this is a problem
                    // ************   THIS LINE throw Exception *************
                    throwException(tr("Illegal value for attribute ''changeset''. Got {0}.", v));

few line of that file: china-latest.osm

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<osm version="0.6" generator="osmconvert 0.8.5" timestamp="2018-07-02T20:00:02Z">
        <bounds minlat="14.27437" minlon="73.41788" maxlat="53.65559" maxlon="134.8558999"/>
        <node id="274901" lat="22.3460512" lon="114.1811521" version="7" timestamp="2014-01-08T15:00:31Z" changeset="0"/>

Whether changeset can be 0 for a existing node ?
Thanks !

Quote from GeoFabrik:

The OpenStreetMap data files provided on this server do not contain the user names, user IDs and changeset IDs of the OSM objects. These metadata fields contain personal information about the OpenStreetMap contributors and are subject to data protection regulations in the European Union. Please note that these regulations apply even to processing that happens outside the European Union because some OpenStreetMap contributors live in the European Union.

We need to be able to open these files.

Extracts with full metadata are available to OpenStreetMap contributors only.

@chenzero: you should download your file here instead:

After download that internal PBF file, I used following command to extract a city data,
osmosis --read-pbf china-latest-internal.osm.pbf --bounding-polygon file="/city1.poly" --write-xml city1.osm
and successfully open in the JOSM!
Cheers and Regards!

There are multiple mistyped GPDR occurences in the changeset instead of GDPR.
