Unattended uploads not possible

Reported by: maps@… Owned by: framm

When using JOSM to modify and upload largish data sets (for example, the output from, the upload fails whenever the server load causes a connection timeout, requiring manual intervention.

I would prefer to see it try a couple of times before deciding it's not possible to upload. Perhaps trying again once immediately, then with an increasing interval until a reasonable maximum retries are reached.

Of course, JOSM should indicate that this is happening - preferably on the upload status window.

Yes, this is really doing my head in too. Perhaps have an option to cancel it while it counts down to retry, so that it doesn't get stuck in a loop if it can't upload, the connection is down or something. I think the increasing interval is a good idea, to help deal with server overload, but there should also be a button in the count down window to re-try immediately if it's going to be more than 10s, in case the upload is not unattended. Perhaps the retry interval should be semi random (ie increasing interval, but in non-constant steps) to help deal with overload most efficiently?

The strange thing I found was that when using a laptop in Japan, the upload was much slower but it never timed out. Weird.
