This site

  • This site is a combined online help and bug tracking system for JOSM and JOSM plugins
  • No login is required to use this site (neither for reading nor for changes to wiki or bug tracker)
  • A login has following advantages:
    • The JOSM applet can store settings on the server
    • Mails are sent for changes in own bug tracker tickets (This is possible by entering an e-mail as user name in the tickets, too. But then be aware of the circumstances that the address is openly visible and you are unable to change that later.).
    • Page settings are remembered (e.g. input field size and a lot of other stuff)
  • Logins which have no e-mail address or which have not been used at least once are automatically deleted.
  • The login to edit the OpenStreetMap database has nothing to do with this server!
  • NOTE: The secured HTTPS version of this site uses a self-signed certificate? with 26:8B:4D:CB:AD:04:E7:50:EC:94:F8:34:83:CE:7C:06:8D:FD:61:3D as SHA1 fingerprint.
    You need to accept? this certificate as valid to silence the warnings of your browser.
