  Description     : Editor for OpenStreetMap (installer)

 JOSM is an editor for OpenStreetMap (OSM) written in Java.
 The current version supports stand alone GPX tracks, GPX track data
 from OSM database and existing nodes, line segments and metadata tags
 from the OSM database.
 OpenStreetMap is a project aimed squarely at creating and providing
 free geographic data such as street maps to anyone who wants them.
 The project was started because most maps you think of as free actually
 have legal or technical restrictions on their use, holding back people
 from using them in creative, productive or unexpected ways.
 This package provides a script to install the upstream JARs.

The upstream source tree no longer includes all its dependencies,
this makes it too cumbersome to provide backports of JOSM, as that also
requires backporting all dependencies which will break other reverse
dependencies in stable.

This package provides a script to download the pre-built JAR from upstream
and the application metadata for integration in desktop environments.

The package will be maintained with in the Debian GIS team where it will
eventually replace the josm package.
