Getting a simple list of changesets on a web page is easy - in my case it's https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/SomeoneElse/history, and on that page you can see how many discussion comments each one has. However finding the ones with comments can involve a bit of searching.

The API call for asking for several changesets supports various parameters (but not as far as I can see whether there's a discussion on not). The API call to get a single changeset can optionally return the changeset discussion.

My question is - has anyone put together anything that allows searching of those changesets with discussion comments? In OSM it's almost a given that someone somewhere will have written something already :)

The 'how did you contribute' site now has this feature: How did you contribute to OpenStreetMap? - enter your username, then select the "discussed changesets" link.

Actually, I use a couple of other places to get to that list - clicking on a user name on http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussions is one way, and the other is to get the UID by clicking on "changeset XML" on a changeset and then appending that number to "http://resultmaps.neis-one.org/osm-discussion-comments?uid="

My knowledge about this quite popular feature request is only reflecting

https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/issues/842

and

https://github.com/openstreetmap/openstreetmap-website/issues/1094

still not solved :-(

Actually no - 842's open and 1094's only closed because it is a duplicate of it.
