I would like to find an edit I made 6m to 1.5y ago, and I am quite good at providing meaningful edit summaries, so I think that I'd be able to find it if I could search my edit summaries, however there is no obvious way to do this.

Is there some service I could use?

There's 1.5Gb of changeset info over at, so you could download and search that I guess.

Personally I'd probably find an object that I know I changed and look at the history of that, though.

Thanks! Downloading changeset-latest.osm worked well, and gave me an excuse to brush up on my very limited grep skills a bit.

I'd tried looking for an object in the area that could have modified in the same edit, but that'd not been successful.

Thanks for the response!

You could try neis's osm-changeset tool, although it is limited to the last 30 days and I don't think you can specify a contributor.

Thanks for the comment, it's always good to learn about more tools, even if it's not what I'm looking for this time.
