I just noticed this monster multipolygon with > 12000 members,
<tag k='name' v='Ireland' />
<tag k='place' v='island' />
<tag k='type' v='multipolygon' />
Nearly all members are duplicated and some members are closed ways
which are single islands. JOSM seems to hang when I try to edit the relation,
so I think this should work:
save as *.osm file, open with an editor, mark all lines with
"member type", use editor funtion to " sort and remove duplicates",
add action='modify' to the relation and safe the file.
Load the modified file into JOSM and upload it.
Is there a better way to do this?
