This is specific application of my question on searching for keys and any key values (as opposed to just names) from a map. I though I would ask it both ways. Maybe someone has a good workflow for looking for things to do (e.g., 'fixme') within an area.

Either from the View or Potlatch 1/2 would be fine.

I realize I could use XAPI, but that method leaves a few too many hoops jump through: I have to calculate the "box" query parameter and then open the result in JOSM, which I currently don't use.

Try the OSM Inspector - a third party tool that shows all kinds of problem reports about OSM data. One of these views shows various tagging problems (likely misspelled tags, empty values etc), and also includes highlighting of all FIXME objects. Here's a permaling for the Tampa, Florida area.

Looks great, thanks. Does it not look for lower case "fixme"? I see a few FIXME objects, but no fixme (and I know there are some).

An alternative to OSM Inspector is Keep Right.

To be honest it does not let you search for any key or any values, but there is a FIXME preset together with a lot of other checks. Those error checks will probably keep you busy a looong time before you have corrected all of them in your area.
