Well, surely your opinion is more valuable than mine (as you are a DD),
but policy 2.2.1 says that packages in main must not be "so buggy that
we refuse to support them", and I think this is not the case of josm. I
would never accept to support a package who can't neither do its main
task (uploading data). In two days of presence in main we received two
bug reports from users who couldn't even start JOSM.

Why? Would moving to and from contrib require to pass again the NEW
queue? Otherwise the change of section is just matter of modifying
the right control field. Am I missing something?

Surely we agree here!

Cheers, Giovanni.
