I am also very interested in getting all the OSM related tools into
Debian. :)

Welcome.  I'm the one loosing his patience and uploading josm into
unstable.  We should add a RC bug when it passes NEW to make sure it
stay out of Lenny until the OSM API stabilizes, to avoid maintenance
problems with the stable release.

I've tested josm with both jamvm, gij and sun java, and the first two
have issues with the menus and the drawing of GPX files.  This make me
confident there is work for you still, even if I already did the
initial upload. :)

Perhaps you want to help me with gosmore too?

Happy hacking,
Petter Reinholdtsen
