Changeset tag for issue closing

Bryan Housel-2
iD now integrates with the KeepRight Q/A tool.. This is pretty great, and you should try it out:


But I have a tagging question.  

As we roll out this feature, as well as other Q/A tool integrations, some people would like to be able to have the issues that they are closing appear in their changeset comment, or hashtag, or some other tag.

It seems like the obvious solution - adding a changeset comment like “closes #keepright-123” - is ok but not great.  It doesn’t really say what the user did, and we will quickly run into the 255 char limit if the user closes a lot of issues.

So I’m thinking of introducing changeset tags like “closes:xxxxx=123;456;789” where xxxxx can be a tracking service like “keepright”, “osmose”, “improveosm”, “maproulette” or any other issue tracker we want to connect iD to.  

Thoughts?  


If there aren’t any serious objections, I’ll probably add this in a few days.

Thanks!
Bryan

Considering heated discussions usually follow object tags, I won't expect the same amount of people to argue about change set tags (I sometimes forget they exist).
Seems logical, although to me qa processing seems complicated to process/fit in a tag...

This is a good idea! You could include OSM notes too. I've often
wondered if an editor could easily close an OSM note based on the
current/last changeset, it could add this tag to the changeset, then
leave a comment on the note ("This has been closed by changeset NNN")
and close it.
