Error when editing tags for already uploaded, and pending, traces


Did a quick search around, and can’t see an answer to the following:

In trying to change the ‘Tags’ for a trace, in the ‘Edit Trace’ part of the openstreetmap sites trace uploading section, I get the following message:

*Application error
The OpenStreetMap server encountered an unexpected condition that prevented it from fulfilling the request (HTTP 500)
Feel free to contact the OpenStreetMap community if your problem persists. Make a note of the exact URL / post data of your request.
This may be a problem in our Ruby On Rails code. 500 occurs with exceptions thrown outside of an action (like in Dispatcher setups or broken Ruby code)

This is so for any of my gpx files, so the link is


I was able to reproduce this with one of my traces. Since it is not completly clear in your post: It happens when you click the Save-Button, which results in the same URI but with HTTP-POST-Data.

I also had some problems with displaying Notes this morning (/browse/note/, which now works again), so maybe it’s just something temporary.

It has been happening since at least the 10th of September 2013, as this is when I first noticed it, however I don’t know about before that.

Ok, that’s a bit longer than “temporarily”. Maybe someone could forward this to an apropriate mailing-list (I guess there’s no one here who could fix that)?
