How do I add members to an empty relation?

Normally (in JOSM for example) you download an area, and any relations that have a member in that area are listed. But an empty relation has no members in any area.

Are you asking about a particular editor here? If you're asking about iD, I don't believe that you can. If you're asking about Potlatch 2, see Richard's comment below.

For iD, I previously logged this: https://github.com/systemed/iD/issues/1906

A manual download is required. Open the File -> Download object dialog, then select relation as object type and type the relation ID into the Object ID field. Afterwards the relation should get listed in the relations widget.

Similar process in Potlatch 2: 'Add to' (under Relations) -> 'Load Relation' -> type ID.
