Here my Background:
I intend to use OSM Full History Data for OSM data quality analysis. This is part of my current thesis and the data will be stored on a companies computer (Germany). Since the new "General Data Protection Regulation" of the EU handling "potential personal data" legally is more difficult. OSM Contributor IDs and Nicknames are such data meaning in my case I can't store them legally on my computer. (Source i.a. FOSSGIS 2018, Zscheile, Datenschutz und die Daten der zu OpenStreetMap Beitragenden)
So my question: How can I download OSM Full History Data (or Changesets) anonymized or without any User IDs or Nicknames?
Downloading and deleting the IDs, Nicknames already violates the law as I see it. (Includes storing the data, even if for a short time.)
