Replacing an A2000 battery

I am currently in the process of replacing my Amiga 2000's battery... On the
one I was finally able to remove there *seems* to be some damage to the
circuit board that was underneath and nearing the 68000. Instead of the
circuits being a nice green colour, it is now black. Is there any way to
tell if this is only a colour change? Also, it looks like some of the
copper has been eaten away around where the negative part of the battery
was soldered to the motherboard.

I have cleaned all of the white crap off with vinegar and a toothbrush. I
then used "Precision Electronics Cleaner" from RS which is _supposed_ to
leave no residue.

Also, how are the solder tabs affixed to the battery? The replacement
batteries I got don't have any.
