Dear Andreas and Petter, today I wanted to work a bit on josm-plugins, specifically enabling slippy_map_chooser. I thought it shouldn't be too difficult, just a few minutes work. Not exactly!
First of all, slippy_map_chooser depended on a newer version of Josm than that already present in Debian, because it depends on an API modification recently made. Not too bad, I just needed to prepare also a new version of Josm and ask Petter to upload them both. Then I moved working on josm: upstream had modified line terminators in many files, so two patches had to be updated. But I took a while to realize it, and couldn't figure out why the patches didn't work. Ok, at the end I managed to get rid of it. Problems were not finished: Josm didn't compile, because it now relies on classes such as sun.net.www.protocol.http.Handler and sun.net.www.protocol.http.HttpURLConnection, which are present in official Sun compiler, but not in GCJ, which we are using. So, the question is: should we move to Sun's javac, or do you know some workaround for this? I've just updated josm-plugins (which can't be build right now, because it depends on too recent josm) and josm (which fails to build for the reason I just underlined) to SVN. Another word to Andreas: we're currently shipping josm-plugins under GPL-3+. Do you agree to move to GPL-2+ like we've done for josm? Happy Debian!
