Package: josm
Version: 0.0.svn7643+dfsg1-1
Severity: normal


Apparently josm "calls home" each time started and checks for updates.

This is IMHO and inappropriate privacy leak.
Keeping software up-to-date is the package management's duty within
Debian, so there is especially no need that this is taken over partially
by software, especially not when it means that it needlessly leaks at least
IP address, version of my current JOSM and the times whenever I start it.

So this function should be either removed or made optionally (defaulting
to being disabled).

Best wishes,
