Hello everybody,

the bugs that have caused the Overpass database to report errors on attic ways have been fixed in the "repair_attic_updates" branch. This also includes the issue
However, to get rid of the broken data, the database needs to be rebuilt.

I will do the database rebuild on the next production server. Catching up from the license change to the current date will take 30 to 60 days.
This new server will run a merge of the branches
* minor_issues
* repair_attic_updates
* backend_compression

The current server will remain in production for that amount of time. Its database is slighty damaged by the fixed bugs and the event of 2015-02-01 at
I will not attempt to make any repair of that database. There are simply too much objects affected although it is only a tiny fraction of the total OSM data.

The database on the dev server is as well affected by the bugs, at least for timestamps before 2015-02-21. However, it doesn't suffer from the 2015-02-01 incident. I will not attempt to make any repair of that database, too. The database on the dev server should now be accessible and up to date to the minute for the next two months without interruption, because no further work on the backend is needed.

I would like to relase the next version when the new production server has catched up. But I will address that in a separate mail this afternoon.

Best regards,
