Great work ! How did you spot this changeset ? Was it by chance or do you at Mapbox check every changeset for suspicious edits ? Thanks for the QA links.

The team at Mapbox checks a random sample of possible suspicous changesets everyday using osmcha. We're seeing what tools the community needs to better look after the local map.
