Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I made a few edits (moved and removed some nodes) with Merkaartor (version 0.17); then uploaded them. My edits appear under "Changesets" as "(still editing)". Is there another step required to complete the process?

I don't know Merkaartor, but the message suggests that uploading doesn't close the changeset. You will get the same if you edit with Potlatch 2 and don't use the extra step to close the changeset after saving. It is nothing to worry about as the changesets are automatically closed after an hour of inactivity.

Thanks! The "(still editing)" does indeed change to a timestamp (GMT?) after some period of time.

Sometimes Merkaartor prompts me to save changes after upload; when I do this; I skip the "(still editing)" status. Merkaartor does not always prompt. I tried "File - Save" before upload; but this has no effect.
