Once or twice a month I build data for MAPS.ME application. After the process of downloading OSM data, building coastlines, extracting objects, generating indexes and packaging mwms is done, the final stage is testing. With that, I get notified when a file size changed dramatically, or many objects of a same type were added or removed in a region. I think you might be interested in some of these changes.
So, what happened between 16th March and 17th April?
And in objects of specific types:

Zverik, this is an interesting way to monitor big changes, if there was a way to inform the various communities to look at the modifications.

By Brazil_South Region_West you mean which region/area exactly, please?

Thank you for these information, and also for your more detailed view of the object changes.
By the way, a little bit OT. I assume one of the main use case of MAPS.ME is routing and navigation. I found interesting behavior if there are barrier=bollard on highway=*. So I also found ongoing open issue at github , could you check this, what is the status of finding a solution?

There is a render that publishes an ‘error’ file for each country/region… I have used that from time to time to see how things are. I have used it from time to time to do any corrections I can.
But a world view of significant changes is nice.

The shrinkage of Portugal was caused by my revert of a large undiscussed import. See the dicusssion of https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/57011880 and the thread on the Talk-pt mailing list linked from there.

@PlaneMad between16th March and 17th April it’s a month and a day, not just one day. Nevertheless amazing.

There is manual import of post boxes ongoing in Czech republic. We have dataset from the post itself.
(manual import = we have source dataset from Czech Post, but each post box is manually verified and compared to existing data)
