Yes I agree. Take your time, if there are any parts that I can help
out, or anything that I can fix up from what I've done so far just let
me know and I'll try my best to help.

A couple of technical points:
* a bunch of the images in josm/images/ are actually copied from other
projects (where those other projects can be thought of as the upstream
What is the best practice here, should we patch josm to use the
versions from the other debian packages and add them as dependencies?
examples include,
a bunch are from tango-icon-theme
josm/images/layer* are from libjs-openlayers
josm/images/icons/* are from the sjjb icon set (which I have already
done some work on packaging)

* Yes, I see a whole bunch of josm/src/* code added. I'll see how we
can exclude this in get-orig-source and patch things to still work.
