Hi

josm How to download a changeset without acquiring the history of every node/way/rel etc.

I'm using 'Download Location' with a URL of the required changeset. It spends a /lot/ of time downloading all the object's histories. This is a long winded laborious operation for even smallish changesets. Is there a way to avoid doing this? What is the necessity for josm to do this?

In the main menu: File > Open location…

Then provide the full URL of a changeset.

JOSM will download every object that has been touched by this changeset. AFAIK, it only downloads the current version of objects, not the history.
