Is there a way to calculate the time spent by a user while creating a changeset?

  1. The OSM Changeset file (i.e. map.osm) has timestamp, changeset, user fields. Can the timestamp filed values be compared to find out the total time spend by specific user?
  2. Also, is there a way to do so using osmfilter?

No. The timestamp only shows when the changes were uploaded. No one knows when the user started working on them.
