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

I want to be able to delete this changeset: 68320814 that I accidentally pressed saved twice (while editing another changeset).

There's no real way to delete changesets from the database.

If the changeset contains errors it can be reverted, but that is just changing things back to the way things were before. In certain circumstances the DWG may choose to redact a reverted changeset that contained data violating copyright or other legal issues.

If there are no real data errors in what you uploaded, or if any errors you uploaded were corrected by your later changesets, I wouldn't worry about it. A failed attempt to cancel data upload can result in duplicates of new objects in some cases, but if you have simply split your changes into multiple sets this should not have happened.

If the changeset comment is wrong because you pressed save too soon, then you may want to add an additional comment to that changeset describing how it should have read.

Hi, I don't know how to revert changes in the Id editor that you use. However it is easily done with the JOSM editor, (revert changes under the data menu). So I have reverted that changeset for you. Bernard
