when i opened this bug there was an upcoming Openstreetmap Web API release under development but it wasn't clear when it will be ready and if the API will stay compatible. That's why we decided to keep josm out of lenny until some more information was available. It's now confirmed that the API will indeed be incompatible but chances are good that it will be deployed in june which would mean some weeks left for testing josm and maybe ship it with lenny. We can, however, expect more changes to the OSM API during lenny release cycle. In the past, a new version has been deployed more or less every 6 month. So far, every change of the API was incompatible with no transition period. Upstream stated that they currently do not want to provide a stable API nor provide time for transitions. Provided that the new API is ready in june we could likely ship a working josm with lenny but we can expect its breakage after a few month as well.
