Что насчёт истории модуля? Он эволюционировал из JOSM scripts.

Easy buildings - осень 2016

Благодарности: мне.

Это была первая попытка заключить сделку с моей ленью. Больше чем нескольких щелчков и одна комбинация клавиш меня не устраивали. BuildingsTools умееет создавать прямоугольные здания, но не круглые (и мне не хотелось их копировать и изменять размер, потому что для меня это слишком сложно) и не жилые зоны.

Pick residential - 2017-03-28, SVĚT-HUB

Благодарности: @Piskvor

Мы обсуждали, что Easy buildings не подходят для @Piskvor, поскольку не вписываются в его рабочий процесс. Однако, он предложил скрипты, которые бы могли создавать жилые зоны вокруг зданий на экране. Не совсем то, чего он хотел (здания нужно выделить перед запуском скрипта), но лучше, чем ничего.

Batch buildings - 2017-09-26

Благодарности: @marxin

This feature fits to @marxin’s workflow - just click as many buildings of same kind as possible. It works for batch of circle buildings and for batch of orthogonal buildings. Backward compatibility ensured and it was not such big pain.

What is new with this feature is that collaboration on github slowly establishes.

Модуль Mapathoner - 2018-04-24

Благодарности: @marxin

We discussed @marxin’s contribution to JOSM that was accepted (hurray!) and the conversation goes around if the JOSM scripts could be rewritten to Java and pushed upstream also. However scripts are pretty specific so I decided to develop модуль JOSM instead.

I named the plugin Mapathoner after 3 days bad sleeping thinking about the name. I wanted to avoid direct connection to HOT or Missing Maps because of potential legal issues. And in fact - the mapathons are where we thought and discussed the scripts, where the scripts were born. Where the Mapathoner plugin was born.

Благодарности: @floscher

A lot changed during last two days. Anywawy, the project has moved to GitLab. Thanks to @floscher, who points me out, I set up automatic builds. And, again thanks to @floscher, Mapathoner является частью JOSM на Transifex now.

L-образные здания - 2018-06-05, Pracovna

Благодарности: участнику disastermappers heidelberg, чьё имя я пытаюсь узнать

Just after successfull presentation of The Czech Contribution to Missing Maps that contained translations of Missing Maps web page and Highway Tag Africa, JOSM patches and the Mapathoner plugin for JOSM I discussed improvement of the Mapathoner with that guy from disastermappers heidelberg. Well, it takes too long to create L-shaped building! Or, in fact, it took.

Pick residential again - 2019-05-07

Благодарности: @Piskvor

Well, it took a little bit longer than it should. Most probably because I think it would not be easy. But why it shouldn’t be? So, now you can make residential area around buildings on the screen. No need to select them any more!

Duplicate and Non Orthogonal buildings - 2020-10-28

Credits: Mike

I am aware of the JOSM-Scripts. And I was always thinking of how cool would it be if the JOSM-Scripts are merged to the Mapathoner plugin. Since now, we will see.

I was a little bit shy when I proposed this merge. There was no reason. The reply from Mike was kind, and he reviewed and fixed (rewrote, I should say) my naive implementation based on his code.

Non Rounded buildings - 2022-10-25

Credits: Martien, Peculiar Theater, and Taylor Smock

It started with Martien reporting bug in “Select Non Orthogonal Building” action. I fixed it with the help of Taylor. Unfortunately, I changed the default preferences. Shame on me. I know I am still learning the maintainer role, but these things must not happen.

There was a discussion about the “angle difference” problem in the #openmapping-humanitarian-validation:matrix.org channel I later joined. I noticed Peculiar’s josm-cripts and get inspired by it to implement “Select Non Rounded Buldings” action.

Around that time, I also refactored the mapathoner page a bit and moved the project to sr.ht.
