auto-update for debian-packages

Reported by: RalfG Owned by: framm
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: unspecified Version: latest
Keywords: Cc:


as most debian users have highs speed internet, the debian package should include a feature to use a recent josm version.

create josm-recent as alternative (etc/alternatives) to josm.
dpkg-reconfigure josm tries to fetch the most recent version to /usr/lib/josm (or sim.).

Additionally, josm could make a recent copy of josm-recent.jar in ~/.josm if desired.

What do you think?
Another option could be a webstart version - but it is sufficient to run:

wget && java -jar josm-latest.jar
