Relation editor 'download all elements' ignores references of members to other relations

Reported by: GeorgFausB <news2@…> Owned by: team
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Core Version: latest
Keywords: relation editor corrupted relations Cc:


JOSM tested (2255) and latest(2485)
After downloading 'All elements' in the relation editor, the downloaded elements have in JOSM editor 'Properties' only a reference to the 'actual' relation, but not to their other relations (e. g. borders, both sides have already a relation).
Editing such an element will have the effect, that changes only appear in the 'actual' reference, but not in the second relation because of the missing reference. The second relation will be corrupted then.

Resolution: wontfix

It would be possible to automatically download all parents of relation members but it doesn't come for free.

We can download the members of a relation with one request but if we wanted to make sure that all parents of these members are in the local dataset too we would have to submit another n requests if the relation has n members. This is quite expensive and slow.

You can already download the parents of relation members members, though:

  • select the members in the relation editor
  • click on the button which will select the objects these members are referring to
  • click on File->Download parent objects

Closing as wontfix.
