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

When someone takes an area for editing (e.g. a river section, as a riverbank or multipolygon) this may take a while. If meanwhile a regular XML dump is created, is the (area) object in the editor is still in dump as well?

Yes. Changes to the OSM database will not be available before

  • the changes have been uploaded with the API to the database
  • the database changes have propagated to whichever operator is providing the OSM data
  • the operator has created the dump/extract

The same goes naturally for anybody downloading data, for example for editing, via the API.
