Thanks for providing josm in debian.
Could you please check COBRA's script at It is GPL3 and would 
be nice to have it in debian (at least sid). Maybe as extra package.

Thanks Colliar

Hi Colliar.

Sorry for answering only after so much time.

I had a look at the script your referring, but I can't understand which
feature I would like from it.

The listed features are:
    *  gets always the newest version of josm-latest.jar or
josm-tested.jar (configurable)
    * backs up old versions (useful when the new one doesn't work properly)
    * is able to launch an old version of josm (via josm -r [revision])
    * passes all arguments to josm - you can pass files to open with
josm, e.g. 'josm trace0*.gpx trace10.gpx'
    * sets environment variables, passes correct parameters to java and
uses alsa instead of oss

The first feature is better solved keeping the package updated, which is
what me and David are trying and (so far) managing to do. You can solve
the second feature simply installing older packages, available on The third without the second has no sense.

The fourth feature is not needed (josm already parses the arguments it
receives). For the fifth, I would like to know about bugs and solving
them correctly, instead of adding workaround that don't seem to be
needed (no one reported bugs about alsa, oss or wrong parameters or
enviroment). If you have such problems, please report them in a separate
bug, so we can work on them.

This script appears to be useful when you download josm from its web
site, not when you're using it from Debian. Thus, I'm closing the bug,
that doesn't apply to Debian. If you want to continue the discussion,
feel free to reopen it and bring other arguments. :-)

Thanks, Giovanni.
