Most editors will prompt you to enter changeset comment:

  • iD
  • Potlatch
  • JOSM among many tools on changesets, additionally exposes manual handling of conflicts
    • If you haven't uploaded your data longer than several hours or days, you may want to update your data using update tools Update Data Update selection Update modified to lower chance of conflict. You cannot avoid conflict if data modified by you was quickly altered by someone else before you uploaded your changes.
