#3402 closed defect (fixed)

Conflict in created_by when merging nodes or ways

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: team
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version: latest
Keywords: Cc: malenki


When I merge two nodes or ways, sometimes I get useless conflict in "created_by" tags (usualy with two choices like "Potlatch 0.9" and "Potlatch 0.8" or alike)

I think these cases should be handled automatically - as JOSM is dropping created_by on upload anyway, these tags should be automatically dropped during the merge and save hassle with the dialogs.

The former special code to handle this case has been dropped already. created_by vanishs over the time and so will these warnings.

Nice error-handling. So to prevent such conflicts one should remove all created_by-tags in advance? If not, how is josm/the mapper supposed to handle that error?

You make us jump through hoops to resolve created_by conflicts, when they won't be uploaded to OSM anyway? Yeah, great usability decision there.

Actually, the created_by tag is sillently dropped when combining ways or merging nodes.

I assume there isn't a problem anymore, is there? Which "usability decision" are you not happy with? The silent dropping of created_by ?

The way I read stoecker's first comment was that there are still warnings, and by my own extrapolation that you still have to resolve the conflict during a merge.

I was working with 2094, where you still get the combine popup with conflicts to resolve, when the only difference is in the created_by tags.

I now tested 2099 and there it merges without dialog, so that's good. It does set the resulting created_by tag to the value of one of the ways. There is an opportunity to already drop created_by when combining ways, in this case.
